A Middle Tennessee youth pastor is under investigation, accused of sex crimes against a teen girl.

According to the Shelbyville Times Gazette, Joseph “Todd” Neill is charged with statutory rape and sexual battery by an authority figure.

Neill is the youth director at the North Fork Baptist Church in Bell Buckle, Bedford County, according to the church's Web site.

His alleged offenses were against a 17-year-old female.

Authorities said the investigation into Neill began when the girl's parents became suspicious about her closeness with Neill and contacted police.
