SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif.– Former youth pastor Jeffery York at New Beginnings Community Church in Nipomo was arrested Wednesday for child molestation and sexual abuse over a three-year period, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office.
SLO Sheriff's arrested the 53-year-old from Portland following an investigation into York for child molestation of a male victim in Nipomo that occurred between 2005 and 2008.
