ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (AP) – A youth church leader in north Alabama has been arrested after authorities said she sexually abused a 15-year-old high school student.

Marshall County Sheriff Phil Sims said 26-year-old Allison Brianna Cookston Stone, of Albertville, was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree sodomy and second-degree sexual abuse. Stone was released after posting $60,000 bond.

It was unknown if she has an attorney who could comment on her behalf. Sims told reporters Thursday that Stone is a youth leader at the Church of God of Union Assembly in Albertville.

He described that as a “position of trust” in the community.
