Church Official Accused of Sex with Boy

BRADFORD, AR - A former music director of a church in Bradford is charged with raping a 13-year-old boy.

Police say 38-year-old Timothy Dean Clark was arrested Tuesday.  Clark was minister of music and outreach at the Bradford Baptist Church in White County.  He remained in jail this morning on $100,000 bond and has a December 4 court date.

Authorities say an investigation is continuing into Clark's alleged activities.

Clark resigned Wednesday from his ministerial duties.  The pastor issued a statement that the Bradford Baptist Church is "deeply shocked and saddened" by Clark's arrest.

Officials say a call to a crime hotline started the investigation.
