Charges Dropped Against Reverend


This morning Reverend Joseph Ellison appeared in court on charges of sexual battery and taking indecent liberties with a minor.

It's been more than a year of legal wrangling for Rev. Joe Ellison. Today's hearing puts an end to the child abuse case filed against the pastor back in December of 2003.

Ellison has played an active role with local young people and is the founder of the Essex Village Community Outreach. You'll remember Ellison was arrested after a teenage girl accused him of touching her inappropriately. Ellison spoke with us outside of court after charges were dropped.
