Coy Brothers is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 14 for his latest run in with the law on sex charges. There’s also a trespassing charge.

Brothers, 88, a former pastor, was arrested in September on two sexual misconduct charges and one trespassing charge that stemmed from a visit to Walmart.

It’s at least the fourth time he’s been arrested on similar charges since 2020, when he was arrested three times.

Brothers was arrested in September but didn’t show up to his original court date in October so warrants were issued for his arrest for failure to appear in court.

He was arrested on the warrants last week and appeared in Arab Municipal Court Monday and pleaded guilty to the charges.
