MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - A McComb minister is among four former police officers charged with sexual activity with a jail inmate.

The Enterprise-Journal ( ) reports that a county grand jury charged each on two counts of sexual activity with an inmate at the Marion-Walthall Correctional Facility.

They’re identified as Vansan Josea Oatis, now minister at Walker’s Chapel Free Will Baptist Church; Justin Codey Herrington, Richard Charles Pack and Michael Williams.

Online phone directories did not include numbers where The Associated Press could reach them for comment Sunday. There was no immediate response to a message left on the church’s answering machine.

Oatis and at least one other former officer worked at the Columbia police department. He resigned; the other was fired.

Oatis was arrested last week and has posted $10,000 bond.
