A Rio Grande pastor remains in jail, charged with 20 counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. 

David A. Young was arraigned Monday in a Gallia County courtroom.

Young was arrested last week after allegations surfaced he sexually assaulted a girl between the ages of 13 and 14 who was a student in a class he taught at the Simpson Chapel United Methodist Church.

The reported misconduct occurred in the one year period between September 2011 and September of this year, according to Ohio Attorney General spokesperson Jill Del Greco.

Young pled not guilty to the charges and bond was set at $250,000.
