Pastor Accused in Arson Conspiracy Speaks Out
Less than a day after Pastor Mark Lewis made bail he was back at the Fellowship Baptist Church, preaching. The 39-year-old is accused of asking three people to throw a Molotov cocktail into the bedroom window of his ex-girlfriend Sarah Nottingham’s parents’ house.
In an exclusive interview Sunday, Lewis denied the allegations against him.
“I didn’t do it … I didn’t have someone else do it. What do you want me to say? That’s the truth,” Lewis said.
Lewis and Nottingham had a one year relationship. Nottingham tells FOX40 when she tried to end it, things got weird.
“Having this power of being a so-called pastor to a church just really fed him to hold that power position,” Nottingham told FOX40.
Lewis was booked and charged with arson, conspiracy and stalking. He would not tell FOX40 how he made bail.
The date and time of Lewis’ arraignment has not yet been posted to the Solano County Court’s website.
