Female Teacher, Two Baptist Pastors, and School Principal Arrested In Sex Assault Of 15 Year Old Boy

A female teacher, two pastors and a former principal have been arrested in a sexual assault case involving a 15-year-old boy, according to the El Paso, Colorado

Investigators said they learned a 15-year-old boy was sexually assaulted multiple times by a female teacher at Hilltop Baptist School  in 2007 but the crime went unreported until 2010.

32-year-old Terah Allyn Rawlings, is charged with eight counts of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and obscenity-promotion.

The former principal of Hilltop Baptist School  Jan Ocvirk,  Senior Pastor at Hilltop Baptist Church Franklin “Wayne” Knight, and the Associate Pastor and former athletic director at the school Raymond “Allen” Knight are all being charged with failure to report child abuse or neglect.  

Raymond Knight is also Terah Allyn Rawlings father.

Two teachers at the school suspected the abuse and were told it was unfounded by those involved.  The teachers reported the abuse to authorites anyway, and were fired by the school. 

I wonder if Bryan Fischer of the AFA will come out say the female teacher is gay?
