A pastor of a church in northern Michigan who is facing charges after five men accused him of sexual assault is heading to trial on charges tied to two of the accusers.

Christopher Cox appears in 86th District Court for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, in Traverse City, Mich. Cox, a Long Lake Church pastor, is accused of luring two men separately to a Traverse City office, offering them meth and sexually assaulting them once they became drunk or inebriated.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports four charges were dropped before the case was sent this week to trial court.

Grand Traverse County Prosecutor Noelle Moeggenberg says Cox is scheduled to appear June 28 on charges including first-degree criminal sexual conduct, methamphetamine possession and child pornography.

His attorney Paul Jarbo says Cox maintains his innocence on the charges and they plan to start preparing for trial.

Cox is pastor of Long Lake Church in Traverse City. The case began after two men told investigators Cox gave them methamphetamine and sexually assaulted them once they became drunk or inebriated.
