VIRGINIA BEACH-- A former youth minister facing molestation charges now faces new charges of abuse.
A grand jury on Monday indicted Gregory Douglas Forehand, 40, on five counts of custodial indecent liberties. He’s accused of abusing three victims between June 1, 1999, and Aug. 31, 2006, while serving as youth minister at Real Life Christian Church, according to police and a news release from the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
Forehand was first charged in August after a 16-year-old boy came forward and accused Forehand of sexually abusing him several times between May 2005 and June 2006 while he was staying at the minister’s home, police said.
Investigators learned children would sometimes stay at Forehand’s home for church events.
Forehand is free on bond.
