PERRY -- A Houston County grand jury has indicted a Centerville pastor on child molestation and related charges involving four girls.
Wiley Green Leverett, 54, pastor of the Solid Rock Community Church, was indicted on four counts of child molestation, one count of aggravated sexual battery and four counts of sexual battery.
Leverett is charged with inappropriately touching four girls whose ages ranged from 8 to 16 at the time of the alleged offenses, according to Houston County sheriffs Capt. Randall Banks, head of the juvenile division.
The indictment alleged that the incidents took place between April 2008 and April 2011 involving one of the girls, between August 2009 and April 2012 with a second child, in April 2012 with a third girl and from January 2010 to January 2012 with a fourth child.
Leverett, owner of Leverett Auto Sales in Warner Robins, previously pleaded not guilty to the charges he was arrested on at his bond hearing Dec. 5. The charges remained the same at indictment.
Leveretts attorney, William Noland, has said Leverett absolutely denies all these allegations.
Leverett is free on a $25,000 bond pending trial.
Also indicted in a separate incident were Michael Dicerro Robinson, 33, of Perry, and Kemuel Ryan Spivey, 27, of Hawkinsville, on charges of rape and sexual battery on March 29 in Warner Robins.
Robinson was also indicted on a charge of simple battery. The indictment did not include any details of the case.
