David Farren, 41, allegedly assaulted the girl when she was 16 and 17, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Connie Mitchell said. The girl was allegedly a member of the youth group Farren headed.

Miller County jail records show Farren was booked at 4:15 p.m. Wednesday. He is expected to appear before a Miller County judge Thursday for an initial appearance at which time bail will be set.

First degree sexual assault is a class A felony in Arkansas. Each of the three counts Farren is charged with is punishable by six to 30 years in prison.
