LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A New Albany pastor is charged with sex crimes against a boy in Jefferson County. Court records revealed the Louisville man is accused of abusing the child between 2009 and 2011.

Isrom Johnson, 33, is faced with three counts of second degree sodomy, Class C felonies. 

Johnson is the pastor at Prince of Peace Missionary Baptist Church in New Albany. Detectives claim the abuse happened in Jefferson County with a boy younger than 14. LMPD's Special Victims Unit arrested him during a warrant round-up.

"Apparently they were in the 500 block of South 3rd and they were able to make the arrest," Officer Carey Klain. 

A prison sentence could carry 5 to 10 years on each count. "These charges are very serious.  Sodomy – second, is basically a perpetrator over 18 engaging in a deviant activity of a sexual nature with someone under 14," Klain said.

In 2004, Johnson was charged with 16 counts of sex crimes against minors.  A grand jury dismissed the charges in February 2005.

Johnson was arraigned and is being held on a $10,000 bond at Metro Corrections.
