Alabama youth pastor Robert Poitier was arrested Saturday night for charges related to allegations of child sex abuse after the church’s senior pastor contacted the authorities several months ago.
Authorities are looking into the possibility of additional victims at other churches where Poitier has also served in Alabama and in Nebraska. People with information in the Alabama area are encouraged to contact the Decatur police at 251-341-4842.
And I have to say huge kudos to this senior pastor for doing the right thing and contacting the authorities!
