A Lake Wales pastor has been accused of a lewd act.

Polk County Sheriff's deputies say Stephen Glenn Charest, 66, solicited a lewd act from an undercover detective in a wooded area near the Lake Fannie Boat Ramp in Winter Haven.

Sheriff's Office undercover detectives were in the area in response to complaints of lewd activity.

Charest, a pastor at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, was booked into the Polk County Jail and released after posting $250 bond.
