Shelby County pastor indicted on rape charge; arraignment set for November

CALERA, Ala. (WIAT) – A Shelby County pastor is set to face trial on rape charges soon. A grand jury returned an indictment earlier in September.

Harry Vester Jones is out of jail on $60,000 bond.

Jones is the pastor of New Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in Calera.

Police arrested him in April when the initial charge was filed.

The grand jury feels there is enough substance to the accusation for the case to go to trial.

An arraignment is set for November 4, 2013.
