Baptist deacon charged for sexting a minor who was a member of church youth group

A South Carolina deacon has been arrested for allegedly sending a sexually explicit photograph to a church youth group member, News19 reported.

Maxell Navar Bohn II, 77, was charged with disseminating obscene material to a person under 18 by the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

From News19:

The charge stems from an incident that the victim’s father told investigators happened to his child, a member of a youth group at Alice Drive Baptist Church. According to the sheriff’s office, the father contacted law enforcement after someone sent a nude picture to the minor’s mobile phone. Investigators determined that Bohn sent the photograph.

According to the sheriff’s office, the suspect is a member of the church and, until this week, was also a deacon there.

Investigators secured a warrant for Bohn’s arrest on Thursday and arrested him the same day, the sheriff’s office said. Bohn was taken to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center and later released on a personal recognizance bond of $10,000.
