YORK, S.C. (AP) - A York pastor and sex offender convicted in North Carolina is accused of sexually abusing a teenage church member.

Investigators have warrants charging 38-year-old Cory Dean Moses with first-degree assault and battery.

Moses was a pastor of New Mount Zion Church and at Redeemed Christian Ministry. Authorities say the abuse began when the teen was 14 years old and continued until she was 19.

Moses left those churches earlier this year. He lives in Charlotte, N.C., and police are bringing him to South Carolina. A working phone number for him could not be found.

In 2003, Moses was convicted of indecent liberties in Gastonia, N.C., for sexually abusing two teenage girls. That offense placed him on the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry, and he served nearly two years in prison.
