Houston Deacon Faces Charges In Child Sex Assaults


An ordained church deacon in Houston is facing child sexual assault charges.

Police allege Barry Todd Durrell committed at least two assaults at the West Houston Seventh Day Adventist Church on West Sam Houston Parkway North.

The 55-year-old Durrell is accused of assaulting a 2-year-old boy in a church closet in May 2016.

The mother of the boy reportedly found the two in the closet. 

A 7-year-old boy came forward last February and told his family about continuous assaults.

Police say there may be more victims.
