MADISON – A former youth pastor has been charged with assaulting a minor as part of a state investigation into clergy and faith leader abuse in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice said in a release that James Lane, 52, was charged with one count of repeated sexual assault of a child for incidents dating back to 2002 and 2003. An arrest warrant for Lane has been issued.

Lane, of Colorado, was a youth pastor at the Faith Reformed Church in Wisconsin Rapids at the time, a part of the Alliance of Reformed Churches.

The assaults occurred when the victim was 14 and 15 years old, according to the complaint. He once assaulted her in a car while driving her home and other times in his office.

When investigators interviewed Lane, he said he had a “relationship” with a girl in the youth group that got “inappropriate,” the complaint says. He recalled kissing the girl and touching her inappropriately several times throughout the years the abuse occurred.
