'Baptist Church director resigns after he's linked to child porn'
The director of children's programs at the First Baptist Church of St. Charles has resigned after authorities began investigating him on suspicion of child pornography, Senior Pastor David Sheppard said today.
The man has not been arrested but detectives with the St. Charles County Sheriff's Department seized his computer Friday at the church, 2701 Muegge Road, Sheppard said. The man worked part time running children's programs at the church for 4 1/2 years. Sheppard said authorities also seized the man's home computer.
The man was not an ordained minister and had worked for the church running children's programs, Bible school and evening youth services, Sheppard said. He has spoken to the man's family, who are members of the church.
"They're one of the finest families in the church," Sheppard said. "They are totally devastated about this."
