LOUISVILLE, Ky. —Prosecutors said a Louisville pastor once wrote a letter admitting to sexually abusing children, and now they want to use that letter in court.
Allen Lehmann faces charges of sodomy and sexual abuse. The alleged incidents took place between 1993 and 2000.
The 76-year-old Lehmann was a substitute teacher in Valparaiso, Indiana, when the charges were filed last year. He was also a minister at an Assembly of God Church in Louisville.
Lehman’s defense attorney said the letter doesn’t involve the cases in which he is charged, and that it can’t be used as evidence against him.
Prosecutors said it shows how Lehman preyed on children.
