Simpson Case Goes to Jury


The fate of a Savannah pastor accused of molesting four girls is in the hands of a Chatham County jury. James Simpson has been on trial this week charged with 19 counts of child molestation and sexual acts.

Police say Simpson molested the girls between 1997 to 2003 while he was the associate pastor at St. Luke's Baptist Church. Police say he encouraged the four girls to sing in the church choir.
