WESTMINSTER — A teen says her suburban Denver pastor sexually assaulted her as many as 50 times over three years.

KUSA-TV (http://on9news.tv/QmW38l ) reports that an arrest affidavit for 51-year-old Gerald Clark says the alleged abuse began in 2009. It said the teen recently confronted Clark because she was worried about others in the church youth group.

Clark was arrested Wednesday on one count of sexual assault on a child by someone in a position of trust. He's been released on bond. It's not clear if he has a lawyer and telephone numbers for his home and Jericho Ministries International have been disconnected.

The affidavit says the alleged victim is 17 and lived with Clark and his wife during summers.

Clark is due to appear in court next week.
