MIDLAND - A man accused of molesting at least one boy is a member of a local church.

Faith Country Church officials confirm to NewsWest 9 that 57-year-old Harold Thompson, Junior is a member of the church.

Officials tell us the church pastor could not comment because he was on ministry trip out of town.

Thompson is charged with indecency of a child.

Earlier this month, we're told a 10-year-old boy told Midland County deputies that Thompson had sexually assaulted him at his home.

Thompson was questioned and arrested.

He has since bonded out of jail.
