Youth pastor William “Bill” Thomas McLaughlin liked the children at his church so much that he raped several of them. Now he a convicted felon and bound for 6 years to life of hard time in prison. Poor pastor Bill. There are no children to rape in prison. What ever will he do?
McLaughlin was arrested in June 2009, accused of sexually assaulting one teenage member of the Denver Church of Christ. Over the next year, three additional victims came forward, prosecutors said.
All of the victims were teenagers at the time of the abuse and two of the four were sexually abused more than 10 years before, prosecutors said.
McLaughlin was a youth group volunteer and had been associated with the Denver Church of Christ for up to 20 years. During that time, he had contact with hundreds of children, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.
He was such a good man… He worked as a volunteer for 20 years… We did not see this coming… He was a good Christian… blah, blah, blah.
