Maurice Frazier, youth pastor at Nazarene Missionary Baptist Church (no website) in Indianapolis, Indiana, stands accused of “numerous felony charges of sexual exploitation of a child and possession of child pornography.” Frazier claims he is a “sex addict” and can’t help himself.
A former youth pastor and registered sex offender is accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl.
The United States Attorney announced 51-year-old Maurice Frazier is facing numerous felony charges of sexual exploitation of a child and possession of child pornography.
The suspect met the victim while working with Nazarene Missionary Baptist Church on 38th St.
According to the indictment, Frazier met the 14-year-old victim through his work as a youth pastor and began communicating with her through social media.
Frazier is alleged to have secretly met with the victim between 15 and 20 times engaging in sexual activity at various locations around Indianapolis, some include his residence, his vehicle and in a church office.
Prosecutors also claim Frazier enticed the victim to produce pornography images of herself through a cell phone and sent them to him.
He is alleged to have sent her numerous images of himself in sexually explicit poses. The indictment further states he said he would leave the area if they were discovered and he could retaliate against her if the victim reported the activity to authorities.
The exact timeline of the alleged sex crimes with the teen aren’t clear, but Frazier hasn’t worked at the church in years following an arrest in 2011, when prosecutors charged Frazier with sexually assaulting female coworkers when he worked at the Marion County jail.
“He grabbed me and kissed me. I pushed him off,” said one accuser in 2011. “You know anywhere he could get his hands, I was constantly pushing him off and pushing him off.”
According to court records in the 2011 case, Frazier admitted his crimes and went on to say he is “a sexual addict and can’t help it.”
Frazier is already on the states Sex Offender Registry and remains incarcerated…
Prosecutors say if Frazier is convicted on the new federal charges, he could be facing decades behind bars.
