ROY -- Police have identified more possible victims of a Utah pastor accused of sexual misconduct with a teenage girl in his congregation.

Aaron Witcher, also known as Pastor Soulja, faces eight counts of rape for the alleged sexual relationship he had with a then 15-year-old girl.

Police say Witcher met the girl at The Genesis Project in Ogden, where he volunteered as a youth pastor.

Now, four others from the Salt Lake County area have come forward with complaints about Witcher. The cases they describe occurred three to five years ago.

The Genesis Project said it has been unaffiliated with Witcher and his Roy congregation for about five months. Witcher recently started his own congregation two months ago in September and began holding services at the Roy Recreation Center.
