MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) -

A former Muscle Shoals youth minister is now in the process of being extradited from Texas back to Alabama after being charged with rape and sodomy.

Kyle Adcock is the former youth minister at Woodward Avenue Baptist Church.

Police said the incidents he's accused of happened to a female under the age of 16 between 2010 and 2012.

Before these allegations even came to light, Woodward church deacon David Turner says the church had already made changes. Those changes were actually prompted by another sex abuse case in the Shoals. 

In February, Jeffrey Eddie was charged with sex abuse, sodomy, and child pornography. He was the children's pastor at Highland Park Baptist Church in Muscle Shoals. Eddie pleaded guilty to the charges in May. 

Turner said when that case came to light, his church got together to come up with some new policies. He says there are always 2 people with the children in the nursery and that they have installed cameras throughout the church. 

"Once the church starts, we lock the doors so that no one can get back into the area where the children and the babies and so forth are as additional security," Turner said. 

Also, Turner said Wednesday that the current church leadership was not in place during the time the abuse was alleged to have occurred. The church said they hoped to issue a full statement regarding Adcock's arrest Thursday.
