HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A pastor at a northeast Houston church has been charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
Paul Cain, 65, is charged with sexual abuse of a child and sexual assault of a child.
Cain is a pastor of New Canaan Missionary Church at 4609 Hirsch Rd. in the Kashmere Gardens community.
