St. George - A pastor accused in the sexual abuse of an 11-year-old student at a Christian school in St. George will soon go to trial.

A judge ruled there's enough evidence against 32-year-old Gabriel Carlin to order him to stand trial next month.

Carlin is accused of molesting a girl, who reported the alleged abuse to her parents and police earlier this year.

Carlin has pleaded not guilty to four counts of first-degree aggravated sex abuse of a child.

Police say the pastor taught at the East Harbor Christian Academy, where the victim attended school.
