A former associate pastor of a large Lexington church has been charged with sexual abuse of two teens, according to court records.
Reid Buchanan, who worked at St. Luke United Methodist Church from July 2016 until August of this year, was arrested Wednesday by Lexington police. Two minors accused Buchanan, 63, of touching them inappropriately multiple times, starting when they were younger, according to a complaint warrant filed in Fayette District Court.
The abuse of the youngest victim allegedly began two years ago. She didn’t come forward until a recent incident.
Abuse of the other victim began many years prior with the latest incident . . .
