A volunteer at a South Carolina church was caught on video surveillance molesting a 3 year old boy.
Jacob Robert Lee,28 was volunteering at NewSpring Church when he was accused of performing a sexual act on a 3 year old in the restroom.
The incident took place last Sunday inside the church. Hazlett was volunteering with a group of children between the ages of 3 and 5 when he escorted the boy to the restroom where he allegedly was caught performing oral sex on the boy before pulling his pants back up.
A spokeswoman for the church says they do not have cameras inside the restrooms but they are outside the restroom door and they could have been opened at the time of the incident.
The church issued a statement to parents with preschool children attending the school stating.
“NewSpring is steadfastly committed to safety and security, and because of the commitment we have an extensive screening process for all adults before they are allowed to volunteer with children birth to 12th grade”. They also said if parents had any concerns or feel their child may have been assaulted to come forward and contact police.
Hazlett has since been arrested and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the first degree and the judge ordered he be held with no bond.
