FAIRBANKS - A $25,000 arrest warrant on child sexual abuse charges has been issued for a Fairbanks pastor ousted from his church in 2008.
KTVF-TV reports 31-year-old Shawn Anthony Justice is charged with 12 counts of sexual abuse of a minor for incidents stemming from June through September.
Justice had been pastor of Corinthian Baptist Church for 15 months when church leaders voted to remove him in November 2008.
About two dozen members of the church and at least one trustee sued, saying church leaders did not follow church bylaws when they fired the pastor.
KTVF reports Justice may no longer be in Alaska.
