LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A Las Vegas man has been arrested and suspected of using his position as a volunteer Bible study leader to assault children.

In December, Sexual Assault Detectives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department completed an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse of a child by David James, 29, a Bible study leader.

In January, James was remanded into custody after appearing in court to face 10 counts of sexual assault with a victim under 14, two counts of sexual assault with a victim under 16, and 10 counts of lewdness with a minor under 14.

Shortly after James’ arrest in January, Henderson Police Detectives received allegations of similar crimes. As a result of that investigation, James was rebooked by Henderson Police on charges of 10 counts of Lewdness with a minor under 14 and four counts of sexual assault.

It is believed James used Bible study classes and volunteered to lead Bible study classes at several different religious centers in the Las Vegas valley to gain access to the victims.

This investigation remains ongoing. Detectives are asking anyone who has concerns their child may have been a victim of James to call the LVMPD Sexual Assault Section at (702) 828-3421 or the Henderson Police Department at (702) 267-4750.

Anyone with any information about these cases may contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or at

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
