CANBY, Ore. – The former pastor at a Canby church is accused of sexually abusing an underage girl, court records show.

Lee Philip Wiegand was a pastor at First Baptist Church, however authorities say the abuse was not related to his time at the church.

A secret indictment filed earlier this month charges Wiegand of nine counts of second-degree sexual abuse. Wiegand was arrested and has since been released after posting bail.

The indictment claims that he abused a minor between October 2011 and October 2012.

Wiegand is expected to appear back in court next month for a case hearing.
