Youth pastor Grant Grayson committed

I would like to see this happen more often.

Third District Court Judge Bernard Borene approved the civil commitment of Grant Junior Grayson Nov. 25, Rice County Attorney Paul Beaumaster said Tuesday, making the years- long process final.

Grayson, 42, worked at the Northfield Alliance Church, now Cornerstone Community Church, in the late 1990s when he was charged with criminal sexual conduct involving a 12-year-old who he took to his home and on church trips. After serving his sentence, Grayson twice violated his probation, once for being alone with boys under 18.

Silly me. I did not even know this practice was still in existence. Now that I do, there are a few youth pastors who need it.
