Grand Rapids-area pastor accused of sexual assault

A Grand Rapids-area Baptist pastor has been charged with sexually assaulting two boys. Authorities said the alleged incidents occurred years ago in Ottawa and Kent counties. Tedd Butler, pastor of Gospel Light Baptist Church in Walker, is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct. Lt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department said the 46-year-old pastor was taken into custody Wednesday in Allegan County. Butler is expected to be transferred to an Ottawa County court today. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
