A Middle Tennessee pastor has been charged with child rape in Sumner County.

Gallatin police arrested the suspect, Randy Giulliani, on Friday.  He was charged with the rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery.

He has not been affiliated with the congregation for at least two years.

Giulliani remained jailed Sunday on $200,000 bond.

He is due in court May 7.
