William ‘Pete’ McCullers, associate pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, Chipley, Florida, was arrested today in Dothan, Alabama. McCullers is expected to be charged “with at least 10 counts of lewd and lascivious acts on four children under 12 years old.” The church has no website and their Facebook page has been disabled.
McCullers, age 64, graduated from high school in 1968. Think about that for a moment. This guy is an old man. What makes a man who is grandfather age molest young children? Those of us who have spent years reporting on and working with sexual abuse victims know that it is unlikely that these children are McCullers first victims. Now that McCullers has been arrested, it will be interesting to see if other victims come forward.
