JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a West Tennessee youth minister on sex charges involving a juvenile.

The Jackson Sun cited a statement from the Jackson Police Department in reporting that 21-year-old Dontavious Dodd is charged with soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor, solicitation of a minor and tampering with evidence.

Dodd has been suspended from pastoring youth at Greater St. Luke Baptist Church in Jackson since August, when church leaders found out about the investigation.

Dodd is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday in Madison County Circuit Court. It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
