MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) -

A Muscle Shoals children's minister has been charged with multiple charges including sex abuse and sodomy.

Muscle Shoals Police Chief Robert Evans confirmed Tuesday night Jeffrey Dale Eddie has been charged with two counts of child pornography, 31 counts of second-degree sodomy and three counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12.

Eddie is the children's minister at Highland Park Baptist Church in Muscle Shoals. The pastor of the church declined to comment about the case, but said their number one priority is protecting the children and helping them move forward.

Eddie is being transported to the Colbert County Detention Center. Bond has been set at $1,030,000.

The police chief is expected to answer questions about this arrest at 10 a.m. Wednesday. WAFF will have a crew at that meeting. Look for updates on air and on WAFF.com.
