Police: Nevada Pastor Sexually Abused 2 Girls
Crime

LAS VEGAS  -- Police say a Las Vegas area pastor facing sexual assault charges involving a teenage girl has been arrested again after a second girl claimed he fondled her.

Henderson Police Officer Todd Rasmussen said United Faith Church Pastor Otis Holland was arrested Tuesday for lewdness with a minor. Rasmussen says the girl says the 54-year-old church leader abused her when she was 7 years old.

Holland also faces three sexual assault charges from a Dec. 17 arrest involving a now 16-year-old girl who said she was abused multiple times during a two-year period. The girl told police she didn't immediately come forward because Holland forbade it. Both of the girls were members of his congregation.
