A 64 year old man was accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl at a Mobile, Alabama  church.

Mobile, Alabama law enforcement authorities indicated that the man was arrested at Stone Street Baptist Church on Sunday. The molester has been charged with second-degree sexual assault.

Church members notified authorities after the man asked the 12 year-old girl for a hug and then violated her. Police records indicate that this man has been arrested over a dozen times, including multiple times on public lewdness charges.

It is rather sad that you cannot attend your favorite church without the fear that you may be molested or even murdered while worshiping.
