Pastor Joe Nix Ivey arrested

74-year-old Baptist pastor Joe Nix Ivey was arrested and charged with molesting a 10-year-old girl. The abuse took place in early 2010.

The girl, now 13, was interviewed Tuesday by a detective and a Child Protective Services worker at the Frederick County Child Advocacy Center. The girl said she and Ivey were watching a movie one morning after she had spent the night at Ivey's house. According to charging documents, Ivey then engaged in sexual contact with her for about 30 minutes. She said Ivey said nothing before or during the alleged contact, but told her afterward, "Don't tell anyone, it will ruin me," the documents state.

The parents of the girl made a few mistakes here. I’m sure they though leaving their daughter with a Baptist pastor was a good idea, but we all know its not a good idea at all. Poor girl. I wonder how long it will take for her to regain her trust in humanity?

Pastor Joe Nix Ivey, was a senior pastor at Barnesville Baptist Church in Montgomery County, MD. He’s already been erased from the website.
