An Assembly of God youth pastor in Gans faces a felony charge in Sequoyah County District Court after investigators reported he made sexual remarks to a 14-year-old girl in his congregation, according to court documents.
Spencer Tally, 21, was charged Oct. 30 with making lewd or indecent proposals to a child younger than 16.
In a sworn affidavit requesting Tally’s arrest on probable cause, Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Deputy Cindy Smith describes incidents that apparently began when the girl attended a church luncheon and told Tally about unwelcome remarks made while she was on the phone with her boyfriend.
Tally told her no one had the right to ask her to perform such acts, the girl said. However, she also said Tally made several unwanted remarks to her in June phone calls, including asking her to perform oral sex for his birthday.
