The charges against former youth pastor Torrey Morgan are serious.
One count of disseminating harmful material to a minor under 18 years of age (felony) One count of disseminating harmful material to a minor under 16 years of age (felony) two counts of indecent liberties with a child (Felony) two counts of second degree sexual exploitation of a minor (Felony)
There are several alleged victims. The case is a classic fail. The leadership had no idea there was abuse happening. Morgan's former church fired the pastor after he admitted to extensive sexual immorality.
"It is the primary responsibility of our leadership to look after the well being of the people at High Rock Church. Therefore, as a result of his confession, we have released Torrey from his position of pastor and revoked his ordination. We are still trying to discover the full scope of the circumstances, and there may be other actions placed against him. We will keep you posted as things develop," Johnson added.
It was a sad day for the people of High Rock Church, but at least they took some of the steps necessary to start the healing.
