Holland Trial Set to Begin

A Dothan church leader accused of sex crimes against children is scheduled to stand trial next week.

Earl Holland is charged with eight counts of sexual abuse.

He's accused of molesting girls under the age of 12.

Investigators say at least two of the victims attend One Accord Christian Fellowship where Holland served as an elder prior to his arrest.

Police also say one of the crimes was committed at the Dothan Conference Center, where the small church once held services.

Holland was indicted by a Houston County grand jury last April.

He's being held in the Houston County Jail on a 2-million dollars bond.

Jury selection in the case is scheduled to begin next Monday.
