RAYTOWN, Mo. -- A new lawsuit alleges sex abuse against a man who used to minister at a local church.

KMBC's Dan Weinbaum reported that an intern in her 20s claims she got pregnant as a result of the sexual abuse by the church's former singles minister.

Weinbaum said the pastor in question is Mark Brooks, son of Paul Brooks, who is the head pastor of First Baptist Church of Raytown. Paul Brooks and the church are also named in the lawsuit.

All parties involved are not talking, although the lawsuit was addressed briefly at recent services.
