Texas: Owen Deane Davis was behind bars Wednesday night when he was arrested by the Highland Village police on a Young County district court warrant. Davis, the former vicar at Faith Lutheran Church, was arrested on a warrant alleging he sexually assaulted a woman at his home.
Sheriff’s Office Investigator Capt. Tim Bay said the investigation into Davis, 63, began in September 2010 when the alleged victim told another preacher that she had been assaulted. The preacher contacted Bay, who began looking into the allegations.
The woman was in the United States illegally when she was hired to work for Davis. He asked her to sign a confidentiality agreement that he later said was a contract requiring her to do anything — even sex.
