WESTLAKE, Ohio (AP) — The son of a northeast Ohio pastor accused of molesting an underage girl has been indicted on similar charges.
Lorain County court records say 26-year-old Jordan Endrei of North Olmsted was indicted on a charge of unlawful sexual contact with a minor. He was arrested Wednesday.
Jordan Endrei serves as an assistant pastor of Church on the Rise in Westlake, west of Cleveland. The church's senior pastor and Endrei's father, 53-year-old Paul Endrei, is facing charges including sexual battery and gross sexual imposition involving a child under 13.
Both are free on bond. The church says they are adamantly denying the charges and will plead not guilty.
