Pastor Anthony Thibodeaux arrest update

In an odd twist to an already sordid story, an additional person was charged with sexual assault and indecency with a child. LaDonna Bracken, the church secretary, turned herself in. The abuse allegedly happened at her house. With the nature of the charges, I wonder if that means she participated in the abuse?

The Freestone County Times is also reporting that LaDonna Brackens was arrested and charged with the same allegations.

The details of how she may have participated in the crime aren't clear, but she turned herself in today. A church member who says Brackens also has ties to this church. She served as a secretary there and worked with the youth.

Brackens worked at the church, and coached basketball and volleyball teams. Thibodeaus is the pastor at Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church. Both are out on bail.
