Memphis pastor charged with child sex in Arizona

A West Tennessee pastor is charged with 41 counts of child sex in Arizona. 
      The Reverend Michael Vahle was arrested at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Memphis on Wednesday and is awaiting extradition to Prescott, Arizona.
      Authorities say Vahle, who is 53, was indicted in charges of sexual assault and misconduct with a minor.
      A county detective in Arizona says there was one victim in the case, who was younger than 15 when the acts were alleged to have occurred between 1989 and 1993.
