An Alabama grand jury indicted a Wayne County pastor Thursday who admitted to sex crimes against children. 

The indictment against Tommy Joe Newberry includes seven new charges related to enticing a minor child, sexual abuse, and sodomy.

There are a total of 11 charges against Newberry. 

Newberry was arrested in December by the Washington County, Alabama sheriff's department for similar charges.

Newberry is listed as the pastor at Red Creek Church of God in Buckatunna.

Sheriff Richard Stringer said Newberry admitted to sexually abusing six boys from his congregation.

Newberry is scheduled to be back in court next month.
