Pastor accused of forcing sex with boy

JACKSON, Miss. — The trial of a pastor accused of coercing a young male church member into a sexual relationship has been delayed.

The Rev. Kevin Joseph Boyd Jr. had been scheduled for trial this week in Hinds County. The Clarion-Ledger reports that no new trial date has been set.

Boyd is pastor of apostolic churches which, according to their websites, are called The Church at New Orleans and The Church at Jackson.

Winston Thompson, attorney for the man who filed the lawsuit against Boyd, has said his client's interaction with Boyd began at age 12 in New Orleans, where both were living. Both ended up in Jackson after Hurricane Katrina.

Boyd's attorney, Carlos Moore, has said the allegations against Boyd aren't true.
