Newport News, Va. - A search warrant affidavit says Michael Harris had sex with a 13 or 14 year old girl and recorded it on video.

Harris is the pastor of Saint James Fellowship Church of God. The affidavit says a member of the church saw the video of Harris and the young girl having sex.

After police interviewed the victim, investigators searched the church, and according to the documents, they took more than 300 DVDs.

Harris hasn't been charged and Newport News police tell NewsChannel 3 the victim didn't want to go forward with the investigation.

But in another case, charges have been filed in Hampton where Pastor Harris is accused of touching another 13-year-old girl in June.

The criminal complaint says Harris was the girl's pastor, and he agreed to teach her how to drive.

Harris took the girl to a parking lot, where he told her to sit on his lap, according to the document.

The paperwork says while the girl was sitting in his lap, the two drove all over Hampton. The documents also say he put his hands underneath the girl's shirt, and began touching her stomach.

He will be in court on Friday for that charge. As for what the affidavit says happened in Newport News, where there are no charges, police say they are still investigating.
