ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The former Albuquerque pastor accused of raping a 5-year-old boy will be locked up until trial.

Curtis Brown was arrested last week and accused of sexually abusing the boy while he stayed overnight at his home. A criminal complaint stated he told the boy to keep it a secret.
