I love how Christians feel they have a right to talk about us atheists and all the supposed evil things we do because we do not believe in their God and Jesus Christ, or how we atheists cannot have any morals because we do not proclaim ourselves Christians.
Yet? Here is part three of the Southern Baptist Convention pedophiles. 20 more disgusting, degenerate, perverted pedophiles and sex perverts, all minsters, youth pastors, pastors and deacons of the Southern Baptist Churches. All of them, leaders of their churches, who are actually? Supposed to be the most moral of all Christians, raping children. I would challenge ANY Christian to find even one tenth of all the pedophiles I have exposed on this blog proclaiming themselves Christians, of atheists. I got Roman Catholic, Episcopal, Southern Baptist, American Baptist, Methodist, and many other denominations of Christianity, their priests, pastors, ministers, teachers, deacons, youth pastors, etc, all busted for raping children. And these are just the ones who have been busted and gotten jury trials and been mostly put in prison. These lists and postings do not include all the scumbag priests and pastors of Christianity who have been busted for raping children, but got away with their crimes due to their hiding behind either the statutes of limitations or sovereign immunity laws.
But once again? Here are 20 more disgusting pedo perverts of the Southern Baptist Convention, taken from Abuse of Faith; Database

James Preston Tyndall Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Alamance County, 2000
Outcome: Registered sex offender in North Carolina with eight felony convictions, including first-degree sex offenses with a child under 13 years old and indecent liberties with a minor. He served 16 years of a 20-year sentence before being released on July 12, 2016. His victim was 7 years old.
Convicted of 5 Counts of Sex Offense 1st Degree with a Child Under 13 Victim age 7.
Convicted of 3 Counts Indecent Liberty with a Minor Victim age 7.
A former Burlington pastor charged with sex crimes has left his Danville, Va., church after reportedly admitting to deacons there that he acted inappropriately with a child.
Many members of the Danville church pastored by the Rev. James Preston Tyndall were shocked Sunday to learn that he had been charged with six felony sex crimes Thursday and had resigned Friday evening.
“I would say our people were shocked. But some of them had heard about his arrest on TV prior to the Sunday service,” Bruce Hutcheson, chairman of the deacon board at Stokesland Baptist Church, said Monday of Tyndall’s departure.
Hutcheson and other deacons who met with Tyndall after his release from the Alamance County Jail have said that he admitted to them that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with the child.
Burlington authorities said the girl, now 14, was 8 and 9 years old when the alleged offenses occurred in Burlington.
Tyndall, 48, was charged by Burlington police detectives with three counts of first-degree sexual offense with a child and three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child between Oct. 1, 1994, and May 31, 1995, while he was pastor of Kinnett Memorial Baptist Church in Burlington.
Police said Tyndall left the Burlington church in 1996 after three years.
He left Burlington and, according to Hutcheson, had served as the pastor of a Baptist church in Mount Olive before being hired about three months ago as Stokesland Baptist Church’s pastor.
“We haven’t had any problems with him,” Hutcheson said.
In checking out Tyndall’s references at the Mount Olive church, Hutcheson said he understood that they hadn’t had any problem with him, either.
“Things such as these can happen to any church, no one is immune,” the deacon chief said.
The Danville church, located near West Main Street, has between 130 and 150 members. It reportedly grew by several members during Tyndall’s short tenure.
Officers at the Alamance County Jail said Monday the minister spent only one night and most of a day in the jail. He was jailed Thursday night after surrendering to police detectives.
The jail log shows Tyndall was released at 5:24 p.m. Friday after a $200,000 bond secured by property was posted for his appearance in court later. Neither the jail nor the Alamance County Clerk of Court’s office had the names of the bond’s signers available Monday afternoon.

Jefferson “Brother Jeff” Marion Moore Jr. Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Smith County, 2004
Outcome: Convicted of raping a child; sentenced to life, died in prison in 2008.
A former East Texas daycare owner who was sentenced to prison for the sexual assault of a child has died.
Jefferson Moore, 60, of Flint, was found dead in his South Texas prison cell by his cellmate and prison officials. This information was just released, but Moore’s death occured on May 26th.
During his trial in Smith County, Moore was convicted of molesting one of the girls he took care of at the Dogwood City Daycare, which he formerly owned. He was sentenced to life in prison for that offence, and was later sentenced to an additional 10 years for punching a Smith County assistant DA during his trial.
A former Dogwood City pastor convicted of molesting small children while in his day care has died in prison. Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons confirmed that Jefferson Marion Moore Jr., 60, (Brother Jeff) died in his cell in the McConnell Unit late last month. Officers were doing a routine head count on May 26 about 5:23 a.m. when Moore’s cellmate told them Moore was unresponsive in the cell,” she said.
While awaiting trial and out of the Smith County Jail on bond, Moore made several threats to Tyler Morning Telegraph reporters covering the case and was warned by Tyler police about his actions and told to stay away from the reporters and the newspaper. The prosecutor told jurors in the case that a child rapist was finally discovered in the community and law enforcement found that he had been raping little girls for some time.
FROM MAN CHARGED WITH TWO COUNTS OF AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT GIVES HIS SIDE
Two charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child against the former owner of the Dogwood City Daycare and Preschool.
The claims were made against Jefferson Marion Moore, Jr. by children that once attended the daycare.
Friday, Moore contacted KLTV wanting to tell his side of the story.
“I’ve dedicated myself to helping kids. It devastated me,” Moore said.
He says he’s innocent. “I want to say that I totally deny any and all of these false allegations that were made by these 2 children,” Moore said.
But Smith County investigators think differently. Thursday they charged Jeff Moore, Jr. with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Moore turned himself in to the sheriff’s department, saying he wanted no trouble with the law.
“You don’t have 19 to 20 years of something and then one day you decide to throw it all out the window and do something that goes against everything and do something you have no desire to do,” Moore said.
He is also the pastor at the Dogwood City Chapel next door to what used to be the daycare. Now it’s a guitar and music lesson shop.
“When they came here this was their refuge really,” Moore said.
It’s Moore’s claim the charges are the result of his disciplining a young girl who was hiding outside in the backyard with two other children. That, he believes, led to the accusations from that girl and one of her friends.
The search warrant affidavit details the six year old girl’s graphic account of sexual abuse. Details so graphic we could not include them in this report. KLTV asked Jeff Moore, Jr. if he had seen the claims.
“Yes and I totally deny it. I saw the allegations and that’s when I just almost died. I wouldn’t touch a child. You don’t become a pedophile over night.”
The affidavit said one of the assaults happened during nap time, something Moore also denied.
“No one ever took a nap with Jeff Moore, period.”
The Dogwood City Daycare was closed in December when authorities began their investigation.
KLTV tried to contact the families of the two girls but were unable to reach them.
Jeff Moore, Jr. said the case is expected to go to trial in September.

Court of Conviction: Georgia, 2007
Outcome: Registered as a sex offender in South Carolina for a sexual exploitation of children conviction from Georgia.
A Camden minister charged with cyber sex crimes is waiting for an extradition hearing.
The minister, 42-year-old Kevin Ogle, is accused of sending graphic pictures of himself over the internet to a teen girl.
The people he preached to on Sunday held a meeting about his arrest.
A man of God, he’s now arrested and charged with cyber sex crimes. Kevin Ogle, 42, is accused of soliciting sex over the internet. Officers say he thought he was chatting with a 14-year-old girl, and instead it was an officer in Georgia.
Deacon Mike Clifton tells WIS, “It was discouraging and disappointing but again a pastor is human just like anybody else is.”
Members of Ogle’s Camden church held a meeting about his arrest. Despite the charges, they are committed to supporting him through this.
Ogle has been a minister at the Northgate Colonial Baptist Church in Camden for three years. Church members say Ogle was an excellent preacher. Church member Jean Shirley says, “I could not believe it. I thought it had to be an error. I just didn’t think that could be our Kevin. I really didn’t. He has so much God-given talent.”
Investigators say Ogle sent explicit pictures of himself over the internet chat room on Yahoo.com.
It’s been a tough case for Captain David Thomley, “It’s shock to me and everyone. We graduated high school together. I’ve known him my whole life.”
Ogle has a wife and two young boys.
He’s now in the Kershaw County jail. Since the crime was initiated in Georgia, he’ll have to be extradited to formally face 11 counts of sexually exploiting a child.
Investigators say Ogle may have had contact with people he may have met online. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-559-TIPS.

Larry Nuell Neathery Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Tarrant County, 2006
Outcome: Convicted in 2006 of 25 felony charges involving a string of oral and anal sexual assaults and molestation of boys from 1998 to 2004. Serving a life sentence in Texas state prison. All of his victims were under 14. His appeals have been unsuccessful.
A former pastor has been indicted on charges alleging that he sexually abused six boys over a 14-year period, many inside Westside Victory Baptist Church.
The Rev. Larry Nuell Neathery, 55, has been jailed since he surrendered three weeks ago. He was indicted Friday.
Neathery, who resigned as Westside Victory’s pastor last month, is accused of sexual misconduct from 1990 until last year.
Defense attorney Tiffany Lewis said Monday that Neathery “emphatically denies each and every allegation.”
According to the indictment, a 13-year-old church member said Neathery sexually assaulted him several times in late 2003 and early 2004. Another person claims Neathery fondled him as a youth in 1990 and, after he was an adult, tried to sexually assault him in 2003.
Three brothers, then ages 7, 11 and 12, accuse Neathery of varying degrees of sexual misconduct; the 11-year-old told authorities he had been abused since he was 5, the first time at Neathery’s church office.
A juvenile alleges that Neathery befriended him and then exposed himself in 2002, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported in Monday’s online edition.

Leslie M. Mason Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Richland County, 2002
Outcome: Registered sex offender in Illinois for sexual assault of a victim aged 16.
Leaders of the Illinois Baptist State Association didn’t think their state Baptist newspaper should have reported last year that a politically active pastor had been charged with two counts of criminal sexual assault involving two teenage girls who attended his church.
Reporting that incident on the front page of the Illinois Baptist put Editor Michael Leathers in a confrontation with the convention’s interim executive director, who was his supervisor, as well as other convention leadership. Tension over publication of the news story eventually led to the editor’s forced resignation.
However, the criminal charges against the pastor have not gone away, even though they won’t be reported in the state Baptist paper anymore. On Oct. 24, the Illinois Attorney General’s office charged 35-year-old Leslie Mason with 10 additional counts of criminal sexual assault.
Mason had been pastor of Olney Southern Baptist Church in Olney, Ill., for seven years until church members unanimously voted to dismiss him Oct. 24, 2001.
Ironically, the pastor would have been preaching the keynote sermon at this year’s state convention annual meeting Nov. 7, if news of his legal troubles had not been published last year.
The first charges against the pastor last year were filed just days before he was to be nominated to bring the convention sermon this year. News of the charges prompted the convention’s committee on order of business to switch nominees for the high-profile sermon.
Before his arrest, Mason’s star had been on the rise in leadership among the state’s Southern Baptists. He was vice chairman of the constitution-and-bylaws committee. He was also spokesman for a group of conservative pastors seeking inclusion of the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message into the state convention’s constitution. He was appointed to the national Southern Baptist Convention’s committee on committees in 1997
Since the Illinois Baptist reported the initial charges against the pastor last year, state convention officials have taken steps to limit the role of the newspaper and prevent it from reporting such matters in the future.
Leslie M. Mason served as the pastor of Olney Southern Baptist Church in Olney, Illinois for seven years. But just days before he was set to deliver a keynote sermon at Illinois’ state convention for Southern Baptists, he was charged with multiple sex crimes. In 2001, Mason was charged with two counts of criminal sexual assault for incidents involving two teenage girls who attended his church. Soon after, prosecutors from the Illinois Attorney General’s office added another 10 counts of criminal sexual assault against the 35-year-old minister.
MORE LETTERS URGING LENIENCY FOR CHRISTIAN PEDOPHILE LESLIE MASON
Many of you were rightfully appalled by the letter from Illinois Baptist Children’s Home director Doug Devore in which he urged no prison time for clergy pedophile Leslie Mason. Many other letters were submitted at Mason’s sentencing hearing. I thought you might like to see a sampling of them.
Recall that prominent Southern Baptist pastor Leslie Mason pled guilty to 2 counts of felony sexual assault on a teen girl in exchange for the prosecutor’s dismissal of 8 additional counts involving another girl. Initially, Mason pled “not guilty” in court even though he had previously admitted his guilt to deacons at Olney Southern Baptist Church, who found that he used his position of trust “to pursue and manipulate a 13-year old girl for sexual gratification and that he continued to use his authority to exploit and to maintain an atmosphere of fear and intimidation for a period of approximately seven years.”
WARNING: Reading these may cause retching. An empty stomach is advised.
A deacon of Fairfield First Baptist Church Ralph Demaret: “I believe in punishment, but I also believe in second chances…. Please take into account the many lives he has helped change for the better….”
Men’s Missions Director & Adult Sunday School Director at Fairfield First Baptist Church Brad Turner: “Leslie is a caring individual of the highest moral character who admittedly made a mistake. He has confessed to his mistake…. Please do not judge Leslie solely on this error in judgment, but please take into consideration all of the good works he has performed in the past….”

Mark W. Mangrum Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Federal, 2007
Outcome: Pleaded guilty and was sentenced in 2018 to 70 months in federal prison and 20 years supervised release for distributing child porn in order to “induce a minor to engage in sexual conduct.” Registered sex offender in Tennessee.
The Jackson Sun reported earlier this week that Mark Woodson Mangrum, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Parsons, Tenn., is scheduled to appear in court Friday to change his plea to guilty in connection with a federal charge that accuses him of using a computer to entice a 14-year-old boy into having sex.
Mangrum was one of six people indicted Feb. 13 by a grand jury in Memphis on federal charges of child pornography or using a computer to solicit sex from a minor.
Mangrum’s attorney at first said his defendant didn’t do anything wrong and was looking forward to defending himself in court. But on Monday attorney Mark Donahoe told the Jackson Sun that Mangrum had settled on a plea agreement, but he couldn’t discuss details.
Mangrum reportedly worked at First Baptist Church in Parsons six years before resigning in January. In February Donahoe said Mangrum stepped down because, “he didn’t want anyone in the church to be uncomfortable or for this situation to affect the church in any way until the final matter can be resolved.”

Baptist church sticking by pastor facing sex charges
A small Southern Baptist church near St. Joseph, Mo., is reportedly standing by its pastor, who is accused of soliciting sex over the Internet with a police officer posing as a 13-year-old girl.
Robert Black, 40, of Independence, Mo., waived his right to a preliminary hearing and is scheduled to appear in court May 14 to face charges of first-degree attempted statutory rape and attempted enticement of a child under 15.
Police arrested Black April 8, after he allegedly arranged by e-mail to meet for sex with a minor “girl” — who was actually an Internet crimes detective — at a car wash in Liberty, Mo. According to media reports, police found more than 130 online “friends,” many of them teenagers, on a Facebook account registered to “Jon Still.”
Investigators believe the name is an alias that Black used to entice teenagers. They have asked parents in the region to report if they believe their children may have communicated with him using that name.
Black is pastor of New Home Baptist Church in St. Joseph, Mo., a small congregation that is affiliated with the Missouri Baptist and Southern Baptist conventions. He claims he is innocent.
Clyde Elder, director of missions for St. Joseph Baptist Association, said May 6 the church is standing in support of its preacher, and by mutual agreement with church leaders Black has taken a leave of absence with pay. Elder said the church is using supply preachers during Black’s absence.
“We need to keep Pastor Black and the New Home Baptist Church in our prayers,” Elder said.
New Home Baptist Church has removed information about Black from its website on a staff page that formerly featured a family photo of a smiling Black surrounded by his wife and three young children.
Black has been pastor of the church, with a history dating back to 1887, since 2008. Elder said Black has been part of the New Home congregation for about four years, first as a deacon and worship leader. He took over as pastor after the death of a longtime predecessor who led the church for a total of nearly 35 years.
Southern Baptist churches are autonomous and make their own decisions, including about whom to call as pastor, but the Southern Baptist Convention urges congregations to perform background checks before hiring prospective ministers.
According to a Kansas City television station, Black cleared a mandatory background check before coaching a team of girls in the Fort Osage Youth Basketball League.
New Home Baptist Church is the third Southern Baptist congregation to feature recently in news reports involving allegations of sexual abuse.
Police in Benton, Ark., re-arrested David Pierce, 56, former minister of music at the city’s First Baptist Church, May 6 on additional charges of sexual indecency with a child. Originally arrested April 24 on one count of the charge, Pierce now faces 54 counts of the crime involving four alleged victims.
Police say current charges relate to incidents alleged in the last three years. They said all the victims alleging abuse are still teenagers who are or were involved in the church’s youth choir program, named Pure Energy, that Pierce directed.
According to the Benton Courier, Sheriff Bruce Pennington said in a news conference he expects additional charges to be filed against Pierce, saying allegations of abuse are believed to date back about 15 years.
After learning of allegations against him, First Baptist Church fired Pierce, who had been on the church staff for 29 years. With 2,500 members, the church is prominent in the Arkansas Baptist State Convention.
In suburban Memphis, Steven Haney, 48, former pastor of Walnut Grove Baptist Church in Cordova, Tenn., received probation after pleading guilty April 29 to rape and sexual battery by an authority figure.
One of Haney’s alleged victims claimed that his former pastor molested him for more than five years, beginning when he was 15. He said Haney lured the youth into a long-term sexual relationship by convincing him it was God’s will and a test of his faith.
Prosecutors agreed to a guilty plea to spare witnesses the stress of testifying in court. Haney still faces federal charges of child pornography that carry a 10-year prison sentence.

Steven Carl Haney Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Shelby County, 2009
Outcome: Registered sex offender in Tennessee who was convicted of a 2003 sexual battery by an authority figure and of a 2001 rape in state court.
Former Southern Baptist pastor pleads guilty to sexual abuse
A former Southern Baptist pastor arrested in 2007 on charges that he sexually abused two teenage boys has avoided prison — for now.
Steven C. Haney, 48, pastor of Walnut Grove Baptist Church in the Memphis suburb of Cordova, Tenn., for 20 years before his resignation in December 2006, pleaded guilty April 29 to rape and sexual battery by an authority figure in a settlement intended to allow victims and their families to avoid the stress of testifying.
According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Judge John Colton Jr. approved the settlement, sentencing Haney to probation for eight years and adding his name to the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry. He was given suspended, concurrent sentences of eight and three years. Haney still faces federal child pornography charges in an indictment handed down in October 2007, punishable by a minimum of 10 years in prison.
Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Haney in July 2007, after a 21-year-old man told detectives that Haney molested him for more than five years beginning when he was 15. The alleged victim testified at a preliminary hearing in September 2007 that Haney lured him into a long-term sexual relationship by convincing him it was God’s will and a test of his faith.
After the arrest, a former member of Haney’s church told a Memphis television station she wasn’t surprised by the allegation, because about 30 members left the congregation after similar accusations involving another teenager surfaced in the 1990s.
At one point police said detectives were interviewing as many as 10 people who may have been former victims of Haney.
In 2008 Haney’s former church changed its name from Walnut Grove to Gracepoint Baptist Church, seeking a fresh start and break with the recent past.
Because Southern Baptist churches are autonomous, they make their own decisions about hiring and firing ministers. The Southern Baptist Convention offers guidelines for protecting against sexual abuse, including a link to a national sex offender database.
Christa Brown, Baptist outreach director for Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, says sex-offender databases aren’t enough protection, because they list only those convicted of a crime and the vast majority of molestations are never prosecuted.
Two years ago Brown asked Southern Baptist leaders to create a national database of clergy convicted, admitted or credibly accused of sexual abuse and create an independent review board to receive and investigate allegations of sexual misconduct.
After study, the SBC Executive Committee opted against the proposal, saying the convention lacked authority to investigate local churches. Time magazine ranked that denial one of the top 10 “under-reported” stories of the year.
In an address to the convention in 2008, Executive Committee President and CEO Morris Chapman strongly condemned “those who would use our churches as a hunting ground for their own sick and selfish pleasure” and said that while the number of Baptist ministers who are sexual predators appeared to be small “one sexual predator in our midst is one too many.”

Court of Conviction: Scott County, 2011
Outcome: Serving a “special life sentence” in Iowa for a sex abuse offense. Committed May 13, 2011.
A Davenport man who police say sexually abused two minors over the course of 14 years was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in prison.
Terry VanHoutan, 49, pleaded guilty in March to one count of second-degree sex abuse and one count of third-degree sex abuse.
He was sentenced by Scott County District Judge Nancy Tabor to concurrent terms of 25 years and 10 years in prison on those charges. He must serve at least 17 years in prison before he is eligible for parole.
“Mr. VanHoutan, this is a very troubling case,” Tabor said.
Records state he abused one juvenile beginning in 1996 and another juvenile beginning in 1999. The abuse continued until last summer.
Additional counts of second-degree sex abuse and third-degree sex abuse were dismissed.
VanHoutan pleaded guilty in 2001 to two counts of indecent exposure, records state. He was sentenced to one year probation.

Court of Conviction: Orange County, 1998
Outcome: Registered sex offender in Florida. Convicted on 12/4/1998 of three counts of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child. Served three years in prison, according to Florida released offender data.
ACCUSED MOLESTER TURNS HIMSELF IN
A minister accused of molesting two girls surrendered to authorities on Friday, five days after resigning from his church.
The Rev. David Joe Rich, minister of Springs Community Baptist Church, was charged with eight counts of lewd and lascivious behavior on a child. Investigators also planned to charge him with capital sexual battery, said a spokesman for the Orange County sheriff’s department.
FROM RELIGIOUS CELL
A minister who molested third-graders at his church school couldn’t promise that he wouldn’t molest again, and so was sentenced to prison for 7 years and 4 months, followed by 10 years of probation. The judge acknowledged the remorse of David Joe Rich, 55, and that he took responsibility for his crimes, but said she wanted to ensure he would not harm anyone again.
Rich, former pastor of Springs Community Baptist Church, pleaded guilty to molesting 2 girls and trying to molest a third during the 1995-96 school year. He fondled the girls, ages 8 and 9, at his desk while other students were in the classroom, said the prosecutor. The desk concealed the probing.
Rich apologized and made no excuses for his conduct but could not explain it. With God’s help and counseling, he said, he hoped never to molest again. But he said he would be foolish to make a “100 percent” guarantee. He had resigned when confronted about the abuse 2 years after it ended.
While on probation, Rich must get counseling. He cannot be alone with children younger than 18 or live near a school or other place where children visit. The judge told Rich he should bring his ministry to prison. “There are people in prison who could use your services,” she said.

Dwight Gregory Watson Church Position: Church employee
Court of Conviction: Cherokee County, 2016
Outcome: Registered sex offender in Georgia who was convicted in 2016 of sexual exploitation of children.
The Canton man investigators called “one of the most active child porn consumers in the state” has been indicted on 10 counts related to his charges.
Dwight Watson, 43, who was indicted earlier this month by a Cherokee County grand jury on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of children, is set to be arraigned Jan. 10, court records show,.
According to his indictment, Watson “knowingly possessed” graphic photographs and graphic videos depicting young boys and girls engaged in lewd sexual acts and intended to distribute them.
Investigators believe some of the videos in Watson’s possession featured children as young as 5 or 6 years old, according to arrest warrants taken out against the man.
Watson was arrested following a Sept. 28 search of his Canton home and subsequently charged with 50 counts of child pornography after a two-month investigation into him by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit.
Detectives seized two laptops, thumb drives, cell phones and several external hard drives containing “tens of thousands of files of interest” from the Canton man’s home on Carrington Way, investigators said.
Watson was initially released Sept. 30 on a $50,000 bond but a Magistrate Court judge ordered his bond be increased to $400,000 after the district attorney’s office filed a motion raise the amount.
In a hearing held Oct. 5, the state placed Cherokee Sheriff’s Office Detective Claude Dobbs on the stand. Dobbs, the lead investigator in the case against Watson, testified that the father of two accused of possessing child pornography “was freelancing for New Hope Ministries as a sex addiction counselor.”
He also said it appeared Watson had tampered with evidence in the case, resetting his laptop after he was told detectives were executing a search warrant at his home.
Dobbs said investigators believe Watson may have used the three-hour window between the time they arrived at his home and the time he was taken into custody to wipe his laptop of any evidence of child pornography.
“It looked like the user profile was deleted or that it was factory-restored,” Dobbs told the Magistrate Court judge, adding that Watson admitted having child pornography on that particular laptop during an interview conducted inside the jail following his arrest.
“Mr. Watson is charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation,” District Attorney Shannon Wallace said Tuesday. “His arraignment is scheduled for Jan.10.”
Watson’s case has been assigned to Superior Court Judge David Cannon and Zack Smith is set to prosecute him on the state’s behalf, Wallace said.
Watson was being held at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center.

Renato Capili Bosi Church Position: Pastor
Court of Conviction: Guam, 2019
Outcome: A jury found Bosi guilty after a trial on two felony counts of second degree criminal sexual assault and three misdemeanor charges, including two counts of criminal sexual conduct and one of child abuse, according to a press release released by the Guam Attorney General. “This perpetrator used his position as a man of God to strike fear in his young victim who looked to him for guidance,” said Chief Prosecutor J. Basil O’Mallan III. Sentencing is scheduled for July 24, 2019.
Renato Bosi, a Pastor whose teenaged victim saw him as a “father” figure, was convicted by a jury today.
Bosi was found guilty of two counts of Second Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct as a First-Degree Felony, two counts of Fourth Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct as a Misdemeanor, and Child Abuse as a Misdemeanor.
“This perpetrator used his position as a man of God to strike fear in his young victim who looked to him for guidance,” said Chief Prosecutor J. Basil O’Mallan III.
“I am grateful to have delivered justice to the victim and her family after a long and tough trial. After coming forward about the abuse, the defendant tried to escape justice by turning his faithful against the victim in a shameful scheme of character assassination. I thank the jury for seeing through the smokescreen to demonize and revictimize her and hope this verdict encourages more victims to come forward when sexual abuse happens, no matter the power or position of their abuser,” he concluded.
Bosi faces a minimum of 10 years imprisonment at the Department of Corrections. Sentencing is scheduled for July 24, 2019, before Judge Perez.
