February 10, 2006 -- Shocking charges of sexual abuse and incest have been leveled at the minister of a Long Island church, authorities said yesterday.

The 53-year-old minister at a Westbury Baptist church whose name is being withheld to protect his alleged victims has been having sex with his three daughters, now 19, 14, and 12, for the past five years in their Rockaway home, according to the Queens District Attorney's Office.

Police sources said he confessed when he was arrested early yesterday.

"What allegedly happened to these children is every child's and mother's worst nightmare," said DA Richard Brown.

He said the abuse took place between July 2001 and last month.
