The girl told investigators that Pounds had performed sex acts with her over the past month after she and her family initially went to him for counseling, according to an arrest warrant obtained by KFDX.
She said Pounds provided her a job cleaning homes for older residents and they met with her for “counseling” at the church, where he gave her meth and they had “sexual encounters,” the warrant says.
On July 1, the girl’s mother asked police for help finding her daughter and an officer found Pounds at a motel, the warrant says. During a search of a room under Pounds’ and the church’s name, police reported finding what appeared to be meth and evidence the girl stayed there.
The girl said she smoked meth in the motel room, where Pounds had performed sex acts with her earlier in the day, according to the warrant, and she was later admitted to a local hospital with “medical complications from smoking methamphetamine.”
