Edinburgh Pastor charged for molesting 13 year old girl

An Edinburgh church pastor has been accused of molesting a 13-year-old girl.

Joseph P. Taylor, 55, was charged with child molesting.

A 13-year-old girl told police that she and Taylor had a sexual relationship, which began late last year.

She had known Taylor since she was 7 years old because he was a youth minister at Who So Ever Will Church. Taylor is now the minister of his own church, called Freedom in Christ Church, according to the police report.

Taylor denied the allegations to police. Taylor said he had only touched the girl to hug her and give her a kiss on the forehead, and the two never had sex, the report said.
