A Buena Vista pastor previously charged with sex crimes involving a boy and released on bond has been arrested again, accused of forcing another boy to perform sex acts in a church van.
Larry Clark is the pastor at the Pentecostal Outreach Church and was first arrested in early November on charges he molested a boy in his bathroom and also molested another boy he contacted through Facebook. Those crimes took place during the summer and fall of 2011, deputies say.
He was granted bond in mid-November but was arrested by Rockbridge County deputies Tuesday on six new allegations he forced sex with a boy this past summer. The arrest warrant information accuses Clark of, "intentionally touching the complaining witness’s intimate parts while in the church van."
Investigators say a total of two young male victims are involved at this point.
Clark is currently in jail and was denied bond by the magistrate judge on these most recent charges.
For the last 12 years the preacher and his congregation have put on the Virginia Southern Gospel Festival in Buena Vista.
The festival is usually a three-day event and attracts hundreds from all over the country.
