The registrar at Liberty University in Virginia said a pastor charged with kidnapping and raping three women at gunpoint never attended the university.

Dale Richardson, who had served as pastor at Freedom Free Will Baptist Church in Ladson, is in jail on the charges.

The church website lists Richardson as a graduate of Liberty in Lynchburg, Va., the college founded by preacher Jerry Falwell.

Larry Shackleton, a vice president and the registrar at the university, said Monday Richardson never even attended a class at Liberty.

The website said Richardson became pastor of the Ladson church in June of last year.
