A DeSoto Parish pastor is behind bars Wednesday for allegedly sending sexually-oriented text messages to minors.
Mansfield officers book 25-year-old Adam Dewayne Carter, of Mansfield, into the DeSoto Detention Center on three counts of computer-aided solicitation of a minor.
Carter has been a youth pastor at the Temple of Knowledge Church for five years. He is accused of sending messages to juvenile members of the church.
Detectives believe the messages began in November.
