A Mississippi man working as a Baptist preacher has been arrested for the rape of a Jackson high school student, authorities said.
Lenell McGee resigned last month as a janitor for the Forest Hill High School after a student accused him of taking her to a motel room and sexually assaulting her, reported WAPT-TV.
He was arraigned Friday and released after posting $50,000 bail.
He surrendered Thursday to the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department. He had been serving as a Baptist pastor.
There were conflicting local reports on the name of his church.
