Jeremiah Gunner Scott was arrested for having sex with a 15-year-old girl at North Coast Christian School in Warrenton, Oregon. Besides being a teacher, Scott is a youth pastor at Warrenton First Baptist Church. Whoops - another Baptist pastor involved in a child molestation case. What a surprise.
Scott is charged with eight counts of third-degree rape, a felony, and one count each of third-degree sodomy, a felony, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and sexual misconduct.
He faces from 90 days to four years in prison for the third-degree rape charges, according to Ron Brown, Clatsop County's chief deputy district attorney. Brown said results of Scott's psychosexual evaluation - should he agree to take one - or whether more victims come forward would be circumstances that sway the length of Scott's sentence, should he be found guilty.
I found this story via Dan Savage and his Youth Pastor Watch. I love his comment:
And, again, parents that let their kids hang out in churches are fucking crazy. Might as well dip ‘em in fish guts and toss them into shark-infested waters.
Yep - It's like he's reading my mind.
