WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) - Jordan Endrei, the son of Pastor Paul Endrei, has been charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

According to the Lorain County Sheriff's Office, 26-year-old Jordan Endrei was charged Wednesday. 

Last week, 53-year-old Pastor Endrei was indicted on two counts of sexual battery and one count of gross sexual imposition.

Pastor Endrei is the founding and senior pastor of The Church on the Rise in Westlake, OH.

Authorities say both father and son pastors sexually molested the same 14-year-old girl.

Detectives say Paul Endrei molested the girl in 2005 and continued until 2013.

They also say Jordan Endrei molested the girl from Spring of 2010 to the Spring of 2011. The church issued a statement which was interpreted by some people as an attempt to blame the alleged victim.

The statement also claims that both father and son pastors will be exonerated when they get their days in court.
