Plum Boro youth pastor Daniel Jack, charged with raping teenage girl

LOWER BURRELL, Pa. —A Plum youth pastor is charged with raping an underage girl he met at Amplify Church and then continuing their relationship.

According to the criminal complaint, the girl, 16, met Daniel Jack, 31, when they spent time together at church functions and fundraising for a trip through the church.

Jack had no comment as he left his arraignment with Judge Cheryl Yakopec in Allegheny Township Tuesday after posting bail, but his lawyer, Robert Mielnicki, spoke to Pittsburgh’s Action News 4.
"Mr. Jack was surprised what the accusations were when he read the complaint for the first time today," Mielnicki said.
During January, the girl says, Jack began texting her often and it made her uncomfortable because he was attempting to get closer to her outside of church activities. The girl says Jack, who is married, set up a Google account for both of them to email using fake names. He also allegedly bought her a second cellphone and downloaded an app to the phone called “Hangout.”
