NEW BOSTON, Texas — Three women in their 30s testified Monday and Tuesday that they were sexually abused by a Texarkana pastor when they were children.
One of the women, now 38, testified Monday that Logan Wesley III, 56, is a close relative with whom she came to live at age 13. She claims Wesley sexually abused her for years, beat her when she confronted him as a teen and continued in his sexual assaults of her until she was 20, under questioning by Assistant District Attorney Lauren Richards.
A recording of a phone conversation last year between the woman and Wesley was played for the jury Monday. In the recording, Wesley, when asked by the woman if he knew how many times he assaulted her, replied “one time was too many,” and expressing that he could receive “life in prison” should the allegations reach law enforcement.
