Youth Pastor from Ohio arrested for sexual battery on fifteen year old girl
A Hocking County judge set bond at $100,000 for a Logan youth pastor accused of sexual battery involving a minor.
Sheriff Lanny North says Travis Bransetter, 29, was arrested yesterday morning.
North says Bransetter confessed to investigators he had had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female member of his church.
Bransetter is charged with three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Investigators say the relationship took place between Nov. 2010 and Feb. 2011.
Bransetter resigned his position with the Church of the Nazarene in February.
A preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 4th.
