Melquisedec Chan, an Alton church pastor, is charged with aggravated sexual assault amid allegations from a woman who claimed Chan raped her while she was sedated.

The criminal complaint states the incident happened earlier this month at the woman’s Edinburg home where she was recovering from surgery that was done in Mexico. Chan is also charged with practicing medicine without a license.

The 52-year-old Chan is also the pastor of Viva Abundante church in Alton which he founded about 20 years ago.
