The former youth pastor was charged with child sexual abuse in March and subsequently charged again in May.

A former Baptist youth pastor in Alabama has been arrested for a second time this year on child sexual abuse charges.

According to ABC News affiliate WDHN, William Wesley Williamson, 38, was charged with three counts of Sexual Abuse of a Child Less Than 12 Years Old in March and was then arrested again on May 9 on one count of the same charge.

Investigators say he “pushed in on the victim’s private parts in an effort to make him sit down" in the most recent case involving molestation of a boy under the age of 12 between August 2017 and September 2017.

The other incidents are said to have occurred at a church camp in 2017.

Williamson was terminated as youth pastor at Mt. Gilead Baptist Church earlier this year, after first being placed on administrative leave when senior pastor Dr. Bradley Rushing received a complaint about his behavior and alerted police.
