      Preacher accused of having sex with minors faces more charges

      The State Law Enforcement Division has now charged Kenneth Jay Britt, 44, of Clio, with Obstruction of Justice in connection with his prior Criminal Sexual Conduct arrest.

      On March 5th, 13th and 21st, Britt is accused of having sex with a 12-year-old victim at his home, according to the arrest warrant.

      Between April 8th and May 28th, Britt is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old at both his home and the victim's home.

      The warrant for Obstruction of Justice says last week Britt gave a letter to one of the victim's mother and tried to get her to sign it refuting the sex charges pending against him.

      Britt is the head pastor at the Clio Church of God.

      Last month, the South Carolina Church of God suspended him pending the outcome of the investigation.

      A Magistrate Court Judge denied bond for Britt Thursday afternoon and he remains at the Marlboro County Detention Center.

      He can request another bond hearing at a later time before a Circuit Court Judge.
