Youth Pastor Keith Dickerson’s trial starts

KeithDickersonI missed youth pastor and firefighter Keith Dickerson. He was arrested in May of 2008 on charges he raped a 4-year-old girl and a woman.

Jeffersontown Police aren't the only ones looking for answers from Dickerson. According to the indictment, he's charged with distributing obscene material to a minor, incest, sodomy and sex abuse of a girl, under 12 years old. It is a case Louisville Metro Police have been handling since last May. Chief Jack Reckner of the Jeffersontown Fire Protection District says he learned of the investigation after Dickerson got an unusual delivery this March.

The wheels of justice turn slowly. At the pre-trail phase is underway. Lawyers were arguing the important of his role as a youth pastor. I think that’s important, especially if he’s allegedly sodomizing 4-year-old girls.
