ADA, OK ― An Ada pastor accused of molesting two boys now claims his alleged behavior may have something to do with his blood pressure medications.

Reverend Kenneth Wayne Huneycutt, 60, of New Hope Baptist Church, is charged with four counts of lewd molestation involving two boys.

Authorities say Huneycutt told Pontotoc County Undersheriff Joe Glover that the molestations began in the spring and occurred at least 15 times when the 10-year-old boy frequently would spend the night at his house and at least once when the 6-year-old stayed over.

Glover said in a probable-cause affidavit that on December 11, the last admitted contact with the boys, Huneycutt told them not to tell anyone about the acts and to keep it "their secret."

Investigators say it was a joint effort by the multi-disciplinary team that lead them to the pastor of New Home Baptist Church in Ada.

Honeycutt is expected back in court next month. His charges could carry a life sentence.
