“Derek L Smittle, youth volunteer, First Baptist Centerton, Centerton, AR, was arrested January 14, 2019, in connection with first-degree sexual assault involving a sexual relationship with a 17-yr-old girl who went to the church. Even though the pastor stated that Smittle was not a youth pastor or in a position of church authority, Smittle told police he had been teaching Sunday School for four years and hosting Bible studies at his home.
Watch for conviction.
