Police have charged a Chesapeake church elder with sexually assaulting a teenage boy for more than a year.
Following a nearly month-long investigation, police arrested Jason N. Ellis, 40, on November 19.
He faces nine felony sexual assault charges in connection to multiple encounters he had with the teen dating back to 2014.
In some cases Ellis forced himself upon the boy, showed him pornography, asked for sex and touched him inappropriately, according to court documents.
Ellis served as an elder at the Deliverance Worship Center on South Military Highway in Chesapeake.
