Former Mid-Michigan Youth Pastor Arrested on Porn Charges

A former youth minister at an Ovid area church was charged Thursday with three pornography charges involving children.

46-year-old Enrique Alcaraz is accused of setting up false Facebook and Yahoo accounts to contact children. Investigators say Alcaraz used the names of Matt James, Mary Parker and Brad Merritt. They also say he received nude photos from one minor and sent nude photos to another.

The charges include distributing sexually explicit material and possessing pornographic material.

The case was brought to the attention of police by the parent of one of the children.

In addition to being a former youth pastor, Alcaraz is also a former member of the Ovid Elsie School Board.

He was arraigned in St. Johns, Thursday
