If only former youth pastor Norman Pugh had been convicted in his first trial. We let him walk in 2006.
A jury took just an hour-and-a-half to acquit a former youth minister charged with child molestation in Oglethorpe County.
Norman Pugh, 40, broke down in tears Wednesday as the verdict was read.
The 16-year-old girl who testified that Mr. Pugh had fondled her 18 months ago also wept at the verdict.
His church rallied around him. He had lots of support. The accuser was a lying slut.... You get the picture. Speed forward three years and former youth pastor turned truck driver Norman Pugh stands charged with molesting a teenaged girl. Nobody stands in his corner.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents and Oglethorpe County sheriff's deputies arrested Norman Anthony Pugh, 43, on charges of aggravated child molestation, sexual exploitation of a child, electronically furnishing obscene material to a minor and making obscene telephone calls to a child involving a different victim.
At least he was not currently working as a youth pastor.
I need a picture of Norman Pugh. Does anybody have one they could send me?
