Teacher/Church Organist Caught with Child Sexual Abuse Images

Roger Worley Jr., 46, of Union, South Carolina, and an elementary music teacher and minister of music at a Union church has been arrested for distributing, transporting, exhibiting, receiving, selling, purchasing, exchanging or soliciting materials that contain a visual representation of minors being sexually abused, according to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal.

Worley used peer-to-peer networks to trade in child sexual assault images. Despite the fact that studies conducted in federal prison in Butner North Carolina show a 1-to-1 correlation between possessing child pornography and being a child molester, the church released a statement stating, “Grace United Methodist Church members regret the incident on June 11th but will continue to pray for and support our minister of music during this ongoing investigation.”
