Former pastor says devil tempted him with girl

RUSSELVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former pastor in southern Kentucky says he won't fight a child rape charge against him and says he was tempted by the devil.

Jody Lusk is held at the Logan County Detention Center in Russellville, charged with rape and unlawful transaction with a minor.

In a jailhouse interview, Lusk told WKYT-TV in Lexington his friendship with a 13-year-old girl didn't begin as a sexual relationship, but said the devil "attacks your weaknesses."

Lusk is accused of taking the girl to a campground in Illinois on Saturday. He was arrested the next day. WKYT reported Lusk is married and has three children.

He was most recently pastor at the Auburn Church of Christ in Logan County.
