Pastor Charged With Sex Abuse Of Six-Year-Old

By Liz Goff
A Brooklyn pastor is charged with repeatedly molesting a 6-year-old girl his wife was babysitting in an apartment at the Woodside Houses, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

James Lowe, 45, pastor of New Mount Zion Baptist Church in Bushwick, molested the girl in the Woodside apartment on March 7, touching her genitals over her clothing, a criminal complaint alleges.

Lowe repeated the act on June 7, then rubbed his genitals against the girl’s genitals, between their clothing, tried to put his hand under her clothing, exposed himself to the girl and placed her hand on his genitals, Brown said.

Investigators arranged a phone call between the mother and Lowe after the woman reported the abuse to police on June 7, according to the complaint. Low denied the charges.

Lowe was charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child at his arraignment at Queens Criminal Court, where he was held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
