Pastor Gregory Ivan Hawkins, who leads Zion Plaza Church in Tulsa, Okla., was arrested Monday on complaints of sexual abuse of a minor, after a 15-year-old girl reported to police that she was pregnant with his child.
Gregory Ivan Hawkins is being held on $50,000 bond at the Tulsa County Jail. He allegedly began a sexual relationship with the girl in April 2012, when she was 14, according to the arrest report.
The arrest report also states that the girl told police she had sex with Pastor Hawkins in multiple locations from April 2012 to January 2013, when she became pregnant with his child.
Police also recorded two phone calls between the pastor and victim in which he apologized and admitted having sex with her, saying he found her “very sexy, attractive and beautiful,” Tulsa World reports.
Hawkins, 52, is also the owner of Zion Child Care & Learning Center, located at 612 E. 16th Street North, which is the same location as the church. Another snake in the pulpit.
