Walter Yocum, a (now former) youth pastor at the Calvary Baptist Church in Bel Air, Maryland, allegedly sexually abused a 15-year-old girl during her stay at "Vacation Bible School" in July:
On Aug. 21, a 16-year-old girl came to the Child Advocacy Center and in a forensic interview, told interviewers she was approached by Yocum at VBS earlier this summer, according to charging documents.
The girl, who said she was 15 years old at the time, said Yocum asked her to meet him in the old sound room and while there, he allegedly touched her inappropriately.
Calvary Baptist Church issued a statement on its website on Aug. 19, which reported that three days earlier Yocum told Senior Pastor Ralph Green he had been "having an inappropriate relationship with someone other than his wife."
Senior Pastor Green then terminated Yocum after discovering that that "someone other," was, allegedly, a 15-year-old. Yocum is being held on $100,000 bail, and is facing charges of "third- and fourth-degree sexual offense, sexual abuse of a minor and second-degree assault."
