Now released on $100.000 bond, Oklahoma Pastor Tommy Lynn Bailey is accused of molesting a foster child over a period of seven years in his home. KFDX 3 reported today that the abuse began when the unnamed foster child was just 14 and continued through February of 2014.

According to KFOR News, investigations by police officers revealed that the abuse began in September of 2007. Baily was the pastor of the Elm and Hudson Church of Christ. He was held at the Jackson County Jail until bond was posted for his release. Police Chief Tim Murphy told the Altus Times that investigation began after the department received a referral from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services in December 2014.
