A Tulsa pastor has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor after a teenager accused him of having sex with her numerous times over the past year.

According to a police report, the 15-year-old female victim told officers on Thursday that Gregory Hawkins, 54, had been having sex with her and that she was now five months pregnant with his child.

The teen told police she had sex with Hawkins numerous times, including at his home, at a Tulsa hotel, the Zion Plaza Church and at other locations, the report stated.

The victim reported the sexual intercourse began in April of 2012 and continued until January 2013.

She also gave police two recorded phone calls between her and Hawkins, according to the police report, in which he told her how sorry he was and that she was, "very sexy, attractive and beautiful."

Monday, Hawkins was arrested and booked on a felony charge of sexual abuse of a minor child.

One of Hawkins' neighbors said she was supportive of the Hawkins family and was praying for them.

At the church, a former member stopped by to speak up.  "He is a sick individual who needs to be shut down. That's my thoughts," said Bobby Cozart.

Hawkins posted his $50,000 bond and was released from the Tulsa County Jail several hours later.

Hawkins is a pastor at Zion Plaza Church in Tulsa.  He took over the ministry in 2003 after his brother, pastor Nico Padillow, was murdered.
