NEW ORLEANS—On Friday, March 8, 2013, the FBI New Orleans’ Violent Crime Task Force arrested a suspect wanted for charges of child molestation and forcible sodomy of a child. The arrest was made in coordination with the Kansas City FBI and stemmed from information provided by the Missouri-based field office. A warrant was issued out of Jackson County, Missour,i for George Spencer on February 25, 2013, charging Spencer with multiple counts of child molestation and forcible sodomy of a child.

The suspect, George Spencer, age 48, was arrested at a residence in the 4600 block of Viola Street, New Orleans, without incident.

Spencer worked as an associate pastor at the Greater Works CME Church in Kansas City, where it is alleged he attacked a young girl in February 2012.

Spencer was booked into Orleans Parish Prison and is awaiting extradition back to Kansas City, where he will be formally charged.
