After reading the article I want to draw you all to the comments from Christians. Because they are blaming the victim!
Corinth police arrested the lead pastor of The Church of Corinth on Wednesday on sex-related charges, investigators said.
The Rev. Jeffrey Dale Williams, 47, was charged with attempted sexual performance of a child, a third-degree felony, police said.
Capt. Greg Wilkerson said the alleged incident took place at the victim’s home on March 30 and the investigation is continuing.
“We have been working on the case since April 3, and there is potential there may be more victims,” Wilkerson said.
Williams, according to police, is accused of attempting to persuade a child younger than age 18 to remove her clothing and show herself naked.
Wilkerson said the victim is uninjured and in a safe place.
Third-degree felonies are punishable by two to 10 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000, according to the Texas Penal Code.
Chris Medley, youth pastor for the church, said the church is not commenting until further investigation takes place.
Williams has been serving at the church, 1301 Tower Ridge Drive, since it opened in 1999, according to the church’s Facebook page.
Calls to Williams’ home were not answered.
Investigators are available to speak with anyone who may have knowledge of this or any other alleged crime involving Williams.
If there are additional alleged victims or witnesses, they are urged to call the Corinth Police Department at 940-498-2017.
Williams, police said, does not have any past criminal history.
As of press time Wednesday, Williams was awaiting arraignment at the Denton County Jail.
Now lets see the comments. Greg Birdsall writes:
How sad for you readers for believing the press. Since they cant report the truth, I will fill you in.
The victim is a troubled youth that had been cared for by this family. She was arrested a couple of weeks ago and now she is mad that she didn't get her way.
This a good loving family and a good loving church.
I actually responded to him, saying:
And that gave the Pastor the right to sexually assault the girl? You're blaming the girl and ignoring the Pastor.

Thank YOU!!! I thought I was the only person who knew that and it bothers me that I can't say anything. These people are unbelievably annoying because no one has any idea what they're talking about. They're just blabbering about stuff they know nothing about. So ignorant...
