Albany - Court documents outline shocking details of child porn charges against a former Methodist minister.

Fifty-three year old Harold Lasseter, Jr. was pastor at Shellman United Methodist Church until his arrest Friday.

An affidavit in U.S. District Court states that Lasseter ordered child pornography videotapes from a website that was really an undercover law enforcement website.

He's accused of paying $71 for two tapes that showed a 14-year old girl having sex with an animal and a 12-year old girl using sex toys.

Lasseter was arrested at his church in Shellman Friday. He surrendered his ministerial credentials to the South Georgia conference of the Methodist Church.

He will appear at a bond hearing in Federal Court in Albany Friday morning.  U.S. Prosecutors want him kept in jail until his trial.
