Lawton minister ordered to stand trial

LAWTON, Okla._

The Lawton minister accused of lewd acts with juveniles was ordered Wednesday to stand trial.

Police arrested 28-year-old Bobby Glen Burrell in August after a 10-month-long investigation.

Burrell appeared in court Wednesday for his preliminary hearing, and that's where the judge determined there was enough evidence for a trial to be scheduled.

Police had begun their investigation a year ago when a worker at a Lawton group home--the Sequoyah House--called them, saying Burrell had exposed himself and performed lewd acts in front of the juveniles.

He's charged with sexually abusing juveniles.

Burrell will return to court November 26th, and that's when the judge will set a date for his trial.
