ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A California man cannot escape allegations he molested boys in St. Louis County nearly seven years ago; boys he met while he was an intern the First Christian Church of Florissant on Patterson Road.

Brandon Milburn, is locked up in the St. Louis County Jail.

He’s charged with 6 counts of statutory sodomy.

His bail is set at $100,000 cash only.

Milburn is accused of repeatedly molesting the boys at their homes beginning in 2007.

He moved to California in 2010, police said.

Detectives called him in for questioning when he returned to St. Louis for a family function last week.

The two victims only recently came forward.

“It usually takes some time for the children to process what may have happened, then they come forward with the disclosure usually a little bit later on.  We were just a little bit concerned that we could have more victims in the area that have contact with our suspect,” said Sgt. Matt Redmond of the St. Louis County Police Department.

First Christian Church Executive Pastor, Dr. Tyler Brown issued a statement Tuesday night.

It said, in part, “our first concern is with how we can best help any victim heal - we will assist (investigators) any way we can as our church family works through this.”

Milburn was on the production staff of the Real Life Church in Valencia, CA, about 35 miles north of Los Angeles at the time of his arrest.

The executive pastor there told Fox 2 the allegations were very much out of character for the man he thought he knew.  He said there were no allegations there yet.

Milburn faces 10 years to life per count, if convicted.
