A former youth pastor / minister was recently indicted on child pornography charges in Central Florida. The Orlando Sentinel newspaper reported that Joel Price was arrested last week. Price was a minister / pastor with New Tribes Mission Church based in Sanford, Florida. Investigators conducted an eight month investigation which revealed more than 6000 pictures and over 200 video clips of child pornography on Price’s computer. While every criminal defendants is innocent until proven guilty and has a right to a defense, there is quite a bit of incriminating evidence on Pastor Price’s computer. Unless someone planted the files or had full access to his computer, Pastor Price will have a difficult time explaining the child pornography on his computer. The Pastor Price story is just another incident of religious leaders who preached one thing yet practiced quite another thing.
