WARNER ROBINS -- A Centerville pastor is accused of child molestation and sexual battery against girls as young as 8 years old.

Wiley Green Leverett, 53, turned himself in Monday, said Houston County sheriff’s Capt. Randall Banks, commander of juvenile investigations.

Banks said the investigation began with a report of a girl being inappropriately touched, and eventually four victims were identified. Banks said he could not say whether any were associated with Leverett’s church, Solid Rock Community Church in Centerville. Leverett also owns Leverett’s Auto Sales in Warner Robins.

Leverett is charged with three counts of child molestation, four counts of sexual battery and one count of aggravated sexual battery. Banks said that at the time of the alleged offenses, the girls ranged in age from 8 to 16.

He said there are no other potential victims currently identified.

Online jail records indicated Leverett was still in jail Tuesday and a bond amount had not been set.
