Church Camp Leader Arrested For Child Porn
Baptist Counselor Accused Of Soliciting Sex Act And Asking Girls To Pose Nude
The former leader of a Baptist church camp near St. Louis has been arrested for allegedly trying to coax girls to pose partly naked and soliciting a sex act from one of the young women, Columbia police said.

Aaron Niles, 20, of Waterloo, was arrested Tuesday on three counts of child pornography and one count of indecent solicitation of a child, police said.

Police said Niles — a member of First Baptist Church in Columbia — met at least one of his accusers during the summer of 2005 at the Super Summer Baptist Camp in Greenville, where he oversaw up to 10 teenagers as a volunteer team leader.

Niles later communicated with the accusers — who knew they were chatting with Niles — on the Internet using screen names such as "loverboyniles" and "godrocks30," Columbia Police Chief Joe Edwards said.

Investigators are asking parents whose children attended the Super Summer camp last year to check their children's computers for Niles' computer online user name to see if he had any contact with them.

Authorities allege that in April and May, Niles solicited girls younger than 18 to pose partially naked, and that he sought out a girl younger than 17 to perform a sex act.

Edwards said Niles is charged only with soliciting the girls to pose partially naked and for trying to get a sex act from one of the accusers. "We haven't charged him with actually doing those acts," Edwards said.

Investigators still were combing through Niles' computer, Edwards said, and "once we complete this, the potential for additional charges are there."

He declined to specify what the investigation has turned up, saying only that "we were able to get enough to get charges against this individual and get word out to the public."

"The long-range goal is to charge him with every violation he has committed," Edwards said.

Police say church leaders have been aware of the allegations since earlier this year and limited Niles' contact with children. He has been allowed to continue attending services.

In a statement Tuesday, First Baptist Church's pastor, Jonathan Peters, said the allegations left the congregation "deeply saddened."

"We hurt for the families who have been hurt by this," the statement read. "We, as the leadership of this church family have done our best to both protect our church and to demonstrate compassion to everyone involved. We have sought to show love without leniency."

Niles is being held in the Monroe County Jail on $10,000 bond. He has an unpublished home telephone number in Waterloo.

What, you think this is going to throw off the scent for the "homosexual = pedophile" crowd?

My parents felt I would profit from a year of prep school after high school before I went to college so I spent a year at a small prep school in Southern Maine. In that day I thought I wanted to be some kind of a biologist and, as it happened, I was sort of the biology teachers "prize" student (I'd already had biology during sophomore year in high school so a lot of it was rehashment). One day the teacher, who also had something to do with a summer camp, brought up the subject of homosexuality (mind you, I knew I was gay at the time but kept it quiet - it was 1967/68 and fags weren't thought highly of in that day) and told us that if he discovered that any of his campers were gay he wouldn't hesitate to shoot them. I still remember the mixed feelings that gave me; for one thing, I'd played it pretty safe and as far as I knew at the time, no one knew I was gay so I wasn't too worried but at the same time, there I was, his best student and he was telling me (had he known) that I would be killed were I to attend his camp and get caught 'fooling around'. What's funny is that years before, the summer before high school, I went on an 8 week long canoe trip (basically a mobile summer camp) through northern Maine during which I 'fooled around' with at least two guys and almost got into trouble for it when I threw caution to the wind and went down on a guy in front of my tent mate. It didn't occur to me that he would tell anyone but of course he did. I, of course, when confronted by three bigger guys, denied everything.

Don't know what that had to do with anything. I was just free associating. Sorry.

I was just waiting for another religious naughty from you to show you more hypocrisy, in case you hadn't seen it yourself:
