Pastor Charged With Molesting Two Teenage Boys

Pennsylvania: The pastor of a church in Aliquippa was arraigned yesterday on charges of molesting two teenage boys.

The Rev. Dr. Laneer Fisher, 38, of Moon, who is the pastor of the Miracle Church of God in Christ on Wilker Street, was charged by Aliquippa police with unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault and corruption of minors. He was charged with those crimes as well as aggravated indecent assault, sexual assault and indecent exposure.

A criminal complaint filed by Aliquippa police said officers were contacted in June by a couple and their son, now 17, who said the incidents with Fisher began two years ago.

"My client vehemently denies these allegations and will defend himself against them," said attorney Dirk Allen Goodwald, who wonders why the two young men waited until now to go to police.
