Privette suspended as president of Christian Action League

SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) -- Coy Privette has been suspended from the presidency of the Christian Action League following his arrest for aiding and abetting prostitution.

The Reverend Mark Creech is the league's executive director. He says the group hasn't been able to reach Privette, and because the league is committed to the principle of due process, the board of directors decided to suspend Privette.

The Reverend David Hansley of Kinston will take over as president. Hansley was the league's vice president.

The SBI says the 74-year-old Privette is facing six counts of misdemeanor aiding and abetting prostitution by renting a hotel room and paying for sexual acts.

Authorities say 32-year-old Tiffany Denise Summers of Salisbury is charged with six counts of prostitution.
