Edwin White was arrested and taken to jail again on Wednesday on charges of child sex abuse, according to jail records.
White was indicted on child sex abuse charges in October after three female relatives of White came forward and said he abused them.
Mobile County District Attorney Nicki Patterson told AL.com that White is back in jail because he reportedly abused one of the child victims again.
His wife also found herself behind bars.
White's wife Lakisha was arrested on Jan. 15 and charged with obstructing prosecution.
Patterson said that when the child said she had been abused again, Lakisha told the child to keep quiet.
White had previously served as an associate minister at a Prichard church. Pritchard is just northwest of Mobile.
Lakisha White was released on bond; her husband remains in jail as of Wednesday morning.
This marks White's 13th arrest, the third for child sex abuse.
