A foreign exchange student claims a Lubbock pastor repeatedly forced her to have sex and threatened deportation. She made those claims Monday morning during more than four hours of testimony in James Clark's compelling prostitution trial.

Clark is accused of bringing a girl from Kenya to study at South Plains College in 2006. He allegedly paid for her living expenses, tuition and airline ticket in exchange for sexual services.

Between tears on the stand, the female testified Clark forced her to have sex with him upon arriving in Lubbock.

Clark is the former pastor of Mount Vernon United Methodist Church and also faces charges of money laundering and fraud.
