Pastor Dwight Futch Accused of Assault Pleads Not Guilty

Dwight Futch

MARIETTA, Ga. - A pastor who ran a Cobb County drug treatment program was in court Thursday morning.

Dwight Futch is charged with sexually assaulting several women undergoing treatment in his rehab program. Futch has been out on bond since his arrest in January 2010.

Before Judge Steve Schuster, Futch entered a not guilty plea to the 21 charges against him.

Police say 49-year-old Futch -- a self-proclaimed recovering addict -- attacked multiple women who were attending the Mentor 1 drug rehab and anger management program in Austell.

The alleged victims said the crimes took place at the facility. Futch says the women made up the allegations in retaliation for failing to keep up with the program's rules.

After police called him a fugitive from the law, Futch surrendered days later, saying he'd been on vacation.

There has been no comment from Futch's attorney.

What exactly where the "programs rules" and who made them up? Who put him in charge and will they be held accountable?

He "spoke the truth" at his sermon? Lots of the so-called men of God know just what to say and when to say it. The name Eddie Long ring any bells?

There are lots of "preachers" who better be praying there isnt a God.

Judgement day will be interesting for sure.
