The Rev. Terry McDowell, a Baptist pastor, has been charged with one count of child molestation involving a family friend's child, officials said. St. Louis County police said that McDowell, 49, of the 9200 block of Alpine Drive in St. Louis, had inappropriately touched a child younger than 4 while baby-sitting at a location in the county. He was charged Friday and held in lieu of a $50,000 bond. Police said the case originated from a call to a state hot line.
