Pastor: minister arrested in sex sting resigned
PLANO, Texas - A minister arrested in an Internet sex sting has resigned his position at a Dallas-area megachurch, its pastor said Saturday.Barron was released from the on Friday night on $7,000 bail. Police were unsure if he had an attorney. Think his god will help him out in his defense? Nah...probably not. He is at the mercy of Human Justice.
[Pastor] Joe Barron was charged Friday with online solicitation of a minor. Undercover officers posing as a 13-year-old girl communicated with the 52-year-old minister for about two weeks. The online conversations were sexual in nature, police said.
On May 6, Barron suggested meeting the girl in person. He drove nearly 200 miles on Thursday to meet her in Bryan, where he was arrested. Police said they found a web-cam and condoms in the minister's car.
