HELBYVILLE, Ky : A central Kentucky pastor charged with sexually abusing a juvenile has told police he is HIV positive.
James H. Bell was arrested Dec. 30 after he went to the Shelby County Detention Center and spoke with police. An arrest citation says Bell told police he is HIV positive and had unprotected sex with a 15-year-old. The citation says Bell did not tell the juvenile he was carrying the virus.
State police say Bell told them he had sex with the minor "on multiple occasions" in 2007. The 47-year-old Bell is pastor of Refuge Temple Church of God in Christ in Shelby County.
