Gordon County detectives have arrested a minister from Plainville on child molestation charges.

According to the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office:

Randy Hufstetler, 52, of 420 Autry Road, Plainville, was arrested Friday afternoon without incident at his Plainville construction business in connection with the molestation of a local child.

The charges stem from an investigation into reports of inappropriate contact with an (then)11-year-old girl who attended the same church with Hufstetler a number of years before.

Hufstetler has been charged with two counts of child molestation.

Detectives have interviewed a second young person acquainted with Hufstetler and who is believed to have been victimized.

The investigation is continuing. Hufstetler remains in the Gordon County Jail pending a bond hearing

Although detectives identified him as a minister they did not know where he served.
