REV FACES GIRL-RAPE RAP (Woman tells jurors he bedded her at 16)

Bishop William Waynes, a 47 year old founder and pastor of the New Beginning Outreach Love Center, is charged with statutory rape, a crime that carries a prison term of up to four years.  Waynes went on trial March 24 accused of seducing an underaged church member he allegedly sweet-talked into a bed full of stuffed animals.  He would say that the priest should sleep with the virgin and that's okay to do this because he loved me, the alleged victim, now 21, told jurors in a hushed courtroom.  Prosecutors say Waynes began molesting the girl when she was 15 and bedded her just after her Sweet 16 party in 2000.
