Spartanburg pastor accused of sexually abusing teen

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A Spartanburg County pastor has been arrested and accused of sexually abusing a teenage girl.

Twenty-seven-year-old Robert Thomas Norris of Roebuck was charged Monday night with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. The warrant said the girl said she was abused between August 2012 and January. She said she was 16 when the abuse started.

Lt. Kevin Bobo said a school official in Woodruff reported that the girl said she had been touched and kissed inappropriately.

It was not clear if Norris has a lawyer.
