SALISBURY, N.C. -

A youth leader at a church in Rowan County has been arrested on charges of inappropriate behavior with underage victims.

Sheriff's detectives say 36-year-old Torrey Morgan of Salisbury is accused of sex crimes involving several female teens while working at High Rock Community Church.

Deputies say the teens were church members.

Morgan is charged with giving harmful material to a minor, indecent liberties with a child and second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The church says Morgan has been fired.

It was not clear if Morgan has an attorney.
