Steven Winn, a North Texas youth pastor, was taken in custody Monday after being accused of child sex assault while working at the Open Door Baptist Church in Mesquite, North Texas.

Winn, 33, was arrested by police in Mesquite after being accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old while he was a volunteer youth pastor at the church located at 1212 S Beltline Rd, Mesquite, TX 75149.


It’s the same church that made headlines back in 2011 when a former senior pastor, Matthew Jarrell, was arrested on a rape charge in West Virginia. Reports say Jarrell committed suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell just two days after his arrest. Jarrell had been awaiting trial on rape charges in San Antonio, according to reports. source

Bond for Steven Winn is set at $75,000.
