Pastor Christopher Cox was charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a 19-year-old man that he met through Facebook.

Fox 17 reports that Michigan pastor Christopher Cox was arrested for drug and sexual assault charges. He faces two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.

According to officials, a 19-year-old man has accused Cox of drugging him and subsequently sexually assaulting him on March 12 at Cox’s office. The accuser says Cox reached out to him on Facebook and promised the young man crystal meth if he came to his office.

The 19-year-old was given meth, but in addition, he was given GHB, a date rape drug. The man was then sexually assaulted by Cox.

During a search of the office on March 19, investigators found crystal meth, GHB, digital scales, and packaging materials.

Another person came forward to share a nearly identical story about Cox. He added that Cox threatened that he should not report the incident.

When Cox was arrested on March 29, he was in possession of what is expected to be crystal meth.
