PALESTINE, TX (KLTV) - The parents of a young girl molested by a Palestine pastor have been arrested in connection with the case.

According to Anderson County authorities, 56-year-old Jerry Dale Ham and 36-year-old Christina Marie Ham were arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and engaging in organized criminal activity.
