Additional victims and charges for pastor Ray Teets

Pastor Ray Scott Teets, profiled here, was charged with indecent assault for incidents in 1999, 2005, and 2013. 

Trooper Nathaniel Lieberum said on Tuesday that he identified three more female victims during an investigation into the initial complaint against Teets, who was working as a pastor at Fallen Timbers Community Church in Springhill. Lieberum declined additional comment.

In a June 1, 1999, incident, Teets allegedly had inappropriate contact with a girl younger than 13 in Springhill, according to online court records. Teets is being held in the Fayette County jail for the original case. In the 1999 incident, an additional $100,000 bond was set on charges of indecent assault and two counts of corruption of minors.

The next incident allegedly occurred on Dec. 5, 2005, in Georges Township, according to online court records. Teets faces two counts of indecent assault of a person younger than 13.

Four counts of corruption of minors were filed in connection with a Sept. 1, 2013, incident in Georges. Teets' bail was set at $100,000 for the 2005 and 2013 cases.

It is interesting to note that Teets could have been stopped if the Kentucky Baptist Seminary that Teets’ attended had acted on the knowledge that Teets had a prior conviction for sex abuse. If they had just done the right thing instead of minting another youth pastor. I still do not understand their motivation.
