A Michigan pastor has been accused of allegedly luring two men to his office where he drugged and raped them.

Pastor Christopher Cox, of Long Lake Church in Traverse City, contacted a 19-year-old homeless man on Facebook and lured him back to his office where he was given meth and GHB, according to Click on Detroit.

Cox allegedly assaulted him and the victim was taken to Munson Medical Center where his claims where supported by evidence.

Then, a second man claimed the pastor gave him meth back in 2018 in the same office. Cox waited until the man was high, drunk and incapacitated before assaulting him.

The man tried to fight him off but was unable. The victim told police that Cox stopped several hours later claiming he had to get back to his wife and child.

Cox is charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of possession with intent to deliver meth.

He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
