A minister who police say confessed to inappropriately touching young boys has been indicted by a grand jury.

Dr. Claude Stephen Harmon was the pastor of the Maineville Baptist Church for fifteen years. He was removed when the allegations surfaced.

On Monday Dr. Harmon was indicted on one count of rape and nine counts of gross sexual imposition.

The indictment claims Dr. Harmon had sexual contact with a child less than thirteen years old on nine separate occasions. It also claims he engaged in sexual conduct with a child less than thirteen years old on at least one occasion.
