By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--   A church pastor in Dallas County is arrested on sex charges -- involving an underage family member.

Sheriff Harris Huffman says 47 year old William Best Junior has been arrested and charged with rape -- sodomy -- and incest. Best is the pastor of Living Waters Church in Valley Grande.

Authorities say Best has been in a sexual relationship with a seventeen year old family member -- for about three years.

"When you're a pastor you're somebody that church members and others go to about their problems and to violate the trust that people put in you that's just a terrible thing," said Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson.

Best is being held in the Dallas County Jail on one hundred thousand dollars bond -- per charge.
