A Philadelphia pastor is “maintaining his innocence” amid charges that he sexually assaulted young children, at least one of whom attended his church.

CBS Philadelphia reports that the “Reverend Mark Hatcher is the longtime pastor of Holy Ghost Headquarters Revival Center in North Philadelphia.”

Hatcher, 59, has been charged with rape, statutory sexual assault, corruption of a minor and other related offenses, according to the news station.

He allegedly targeted three victims, who were 6, 13, and 15 years old at the time of the assaults. The alleged pedophile’s crimes date back to at least the year 2000.

While the pentecostal pastor’s attorney defended his client, a judge agreed with prosecutors that Hatcher was a “danger to the community.” He was denied bail.
