Suburban Chicago pastor accused of sexual assault

CHICAGO – A suburban Chicago pastor is being accused of sexually assaulting a child.

Authorities said the Rev. Donald Jung of the Second Baptist Church in La Grange was arrested and charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

He was to appear in bond court Saturday.

A colleague at the church tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he is surprised by the allegations.

The Rev. Lynn Lacey said Jung is "an honest person" and the accusations do not reflect the man he knows.
