TEXAS, U.S – A 65-year-old man has been arrested for sexually abusing a minor, just a week after his pastor son, 33, was arrested on three counts of sexual assault of a child.
Larry Allen Winn was arrested on Thursday on one count of sexual assault of a child and was released from the Dallas County jail Monday after posting $25,000 bond.
Winn ran the bus ministry at Open Door Baptist Church on South Belt Line Road in Dallas.
The church provides children with rides to and from services and Sunday school and according to Mesquite police, a church member said Winn raped her three years ago, when she was 16.
The church’s website no longer lists Winn as a member of staff. The church did not return calls seeking comment.
Police have suggested there may be more victims given Winn’s position at the church gave his access to children for several years.
Because Winn’s position at the church allowed him access to children for a number of years, police think there may be more victims.
Winn’s son Steven allegedly had a sexual relationship with a female student at the church’s Christian academy for more than a year, when she was just 15-years-old.
Steven also faces three counts of sexual assault of a child in Kaufman County.
He remained at the Dallas County jail Monday, with total bail set at $375,000.
He worked in Mesquite’s public works department for 14 years until he was fired last month before his arrest.
