LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock pastor is arrested after authorities say he sent a lewd video of himself to a 16-year-old girl in Louisiana.
Dean Tarkington, 57, was pastor at Word of Faith Christian Center in the 7300 block of 82nd. He was arrested on federal charges. Louisiana authorities contacted Lubbock police last month.
Tarkington is not believed to have had any physical contact with any children.
The Word of Faith Christian Center opened last February, but has since shut down.
