HOUSTON (AP) - A former Houston-area minister accused of having sex with a Texas youth group member has been extradited from New York City.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says 33-year-old Jude Ramdial faces a charge of sexual assault of a child.

Investigators on Wednesday announced Ramdial’s return to Houston with bond set at $50,000. Online jail records Thursday did not list Ramdial’s custody status or details on an attorney for him.

Ramdial was a youth minister at Woodforest Worship Center Church of God in Channelview. The sexual abuse investigation goes back to 2005 and a then-15-year-old girl, who recently reported the alleged abuse. Authorities are seeking other possible victims in Texas.

Ramdial had been a pastor with Hope NYC church, which he helped establish. He was arrested last month.
