Mack Allen Davis, former youth minister at Lakeside Baptist Church, Birmingham, pleaded guilty Dec. 1 to six charges of sexually abusing minors in Jefferson County. The 74-year-old still faces charges involving the same victims in Cherokee and St. Clair counties.
Davis is accused of molesting two boys over the course of a decade from the late 1970s to the late 1980s in various locations.
Davis began serving at Lakeside Baptist in 1977 as minister of youth and recreation and the following summer also was named director of the church’s camp. He retired in 1999 at age 59 after his wife filed for divorce.
Sentencing for Davis is scheduled for April 9.
