(Goose Creek-AP) December 22, 2006 - A North Charleston minister faces another sex charge.

Goose Creek police have charged 39-year-old Tyrone Moore with assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct. It's the ninth charge they have filed against the founder of Full Word Ministries.

Moore is accused of simulating a sex act on a 22-year-old member of the church he founded after he served nine years in prison on convictions for two sex-related crimes involving children.

Police say Moore was arrested last month and charged with sexually assaulting a teenage church member in 2002 and 2003.

Defense attorney Eduardo Curry has asked people to withhold judgment until all of the facts are known.

Seven males in either North Charleston or Goose Creek have accused Moore of attempted or actual sexual abuse.
