A youth pastor at a Tampa church was arrested on Sunday and faces multiple charges of lewd and lascivious behavior and sexual battery for having sex with a teen.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies say Samuel Armand Sutter, 26, started a sexual relationship with the victim in October 2015. The victim attended Openwater Church in Odessa, where Sutter is a youth pastor.
The victim reportedly disclosed the relationship to her mother after the mother found sexual pictures, videos and texts exchanged between the suspect and the victim. The mother then contacted the Sheriff's Office.
