OHIO: A youth minister in Mt. Orab has been accused of having inappropriate relations with a minor of the congregation. Charles Engle, 49, has been the youth minister at the First Baptist Church of Mt. Orab on South High Street for about a year and a half. Charges were filed against Engle Wednesday, May 1, by the parents of a 15-year-old girl who claimed that Engle was inappropriate with her on three separate occasions between November 2012 and April of this year. All three incidents allegedly occurred at the church in its youth ministry house.... Engle turned himself in Thursday, May 2, and was given a $25,000 cash, surety property bond. "He has since been bonded out," Owens said, "but he is to have no contact with the victim or her family." The ruling did not require, however, that Engle have no contact with the rest of the youth group.
