Former youth minister arrested for sex abuse

Gordon Lunceford

A grand jury indicted 47-year old Gordon Lunceford on 13 sex related charges, including six counts of 3rd degree rape, one county of first degree sexual abuse, five counts of third degree sodomy and one county of second degree sexual abuse.
Kentucky State Police began investigating Lunceford last year after two victims came forward to say they were victimized in the early 1990s. Lunceford was a youth minister at a church in Anderson County at the time. A church employee at First Baptist Church in Lawrenceburg says Lunceford was employed by that church until December of 1992 but would not comment on the allegations of abuse.
Detectives say Lunceford has also been a youth minister at churches in Madison and Franklin counties. They have not been contacted by anybody as to possible misconduct during Lunceford's time at those other churches, but say they are looking for anyone who may have been a victim to contact them at 502-227-2221.
