Police say a former Montgomery minister has been arrested and charged with sexual torture and aggravated child abuse.

The minister, 47-year-old Barry Cook, was arrested Thursday. Cook resigned Monday from his position at the Christian Life Church of Montgomery, citing personal issues.

Cook is being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a $500,000 bond. Police say the former minister will be arrested on an outstanding domestic violence warrant when he is released from the county jail.

Child Protect is a Montgomery organization that assists law enforcement in child abuse cases. Director Jannah Bailey says she is shocked the accusations were made against a minister.
