Kentucky State Police say a preacher arrested for sexual abuse is HIV positive.
Police arrested James Howard Bell last month for abusing a child who was under 16-years old.
Bell is the pastor at the Refuge Temple Church of God in Christ in Shelby County.
Police say they believe Bell turned himself in because he believed a victim would come forward to incriminate him.
The church has not commented on the case.
Bell continues to be held in the Shelby County Jail on a $50,000 full cash bond.
