LAWRENCEVILLE, GA (AP) -- Gwinnett County police have charged a 57-year-old minister with child molestation.
Nathan Clement Ridgeway of Duluth is charged with one count of aggravated sexual battery and one count of aggravated child molestation.
The investigation involves a three-year-old family member who was at the suspect's residence.
Ridgeway is a pastor of a non-denominational church in Norcross -- Faith Life Fellowship. He also runs and works at a day care center, which operates out of that church.
Investigations say there are NO allegations of abuse involving anyone from the church or day care center.
Authorities arrested Ridgeway on Friday.
