Kentucky State Police say a mother found lewd text messages from a stranger on her daughter's phone, which led to the arrest of a local youth minister.

Jonathan Hall, 29, is accused of 'sexting' a 15-year-old girl.

Officers say Hall--whom Southland Christian Church confirms was a youth minister at their Danville location until he was recently let go--met the victim through church.

Police say he then began texting her and emailing her, but told her he was an 18-year-old University of Kentucy student named Zachary Blight Carter.

Investigators said the messages soon became sexual, and eventually included an exchange of nude photos.

State police searched Hall's home Tuesday and say they found nude pictures of what appear to be young girls, some possibly from other states.

Hall is being held at the Boyle County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.
