UNION, S.C.A former Union County pastor has been accused of having sex with and molesting a teen girl for several months.
Stephen Berry, 38, of Jonesville, was charged Tuesday with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
According to an incident report from the Union County Sheriff's Office, a person at Union County High School contacted investigators about the assault.
