WEST MEMPHIS, AR - A West Memphis pastor and newly-elected member of the Crittenden County Quorum Court has been arrested on charges of video voyeurism.  Jack Moten, 61, was arrested yesterday by West Memphis police, which received a complaint about Moten on Friday.

Moten is accused of putting a video camera in the bedroom of a child under the age of 17, in his house on south 12th Street in West Memphis.  Video voyeurism is a Class D felony in Arkansas.

As personal information on Moten was being entered into the National Crime Information Center's (NCIC) data base, West Memphis authorities also discovered that Moten was wanted in Shelby County, Tennessee for a 2005 fraud charge, in which he allegedly used a false identity to fraudulently obtain a Cadillac Escalade, valued at $54,000, from Bud Davis Cadillac.

Moten is scheduled to appear in West Memphis District Court late this afternoon.
