Attleboro Pastor Charged with Sex Abuse

The assistant pastor of an Attleboro church who is also the principal of an affiliated school has been charged with sexually abusing a student starting when she was a seventh-grader.

The Rev. Jeffrey Nichols of Grace Baptist Church and Grace Baptist Christian Academy was ordered held on $25,000 bail after not guilty pleas to charges including aggravated indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 were entered on his behalf Tuesday.

Prosecutors say he molested a seventh-grade student beginning in 2008 when she was 13 and continued until last June.

Church Pastor Jeff Bailey tells The Sun Chronicle that he immediately fired Nichols when Nichols told him about the allegations Monday.

The 47-year-old Nichols’ lawyer argued for no bail with GPS monitoring because his client had no criminal history.
