The brother of San Antonio megachurch pastor John Hagee was arrested Wednesday and charged with indecency with a child by contact and continuous sexual abuse of a child, according to a KENS5 news report.
Jack Hagee, 74, a former precinct captain in Houston’s Harris County, is accused of having sexually abused the victim for years, the station reports. According to the charges, he began sexually assaulting the child when she was 5 years old and continued the abuse from 1989 to 1997.
Citing police records, ABC News reports that the victim told a relative, who’s not named in arrest records, about the abuse. In the affidavit, investigators said they spoke with the relative, who told them that she informed Jack Hagee’s brother about the allegations.
A spokesman for John Hagee, who leads the Cornerstone Church congregation, confirmed to Christian Celebrities Stars News that the pastor is the brother mentioned in the affidavit.
