Total Depravity: The Pastor and his Facebook Porn

It just won’t end, will it?

The FBI has charged a Kentucky pastor with posting child pornography on a Fairhope man’s Facebook account.  According to an affidavit filed by a Mobile-based FBI agent this week, Jerry L. Cannon has used 13 different false Facebook profiles to send and solicit illicit images on the popular social networking site. One of those profiles, using the name Terry Lewis, has been used to post more than 600 images of child pornography, including prepubescent girls with their genitals exposed. It also had multiple videos of child pornography, including adults performing sex acts on young girls, according to the criminal complaint.  Tommy Loftis, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Mobile, said Cannon has been arrested in Kentucky and is awaiting transfer to Alabama. No one answered a message left at his home in Crittenden, Ky., this afternoon.

Reprobate pervert.  Still worse

Investigators took control of the victim’s Facebook account and tracked that name to Cannon, who was a pastor at Church of God in Dry Ridge, Ky. A youth pastor at the church said Friday that Cannon no longer is pastor there.  According to Cannon’s Facebook page, he is from Mobile. The affidavit states that his Facebook page contained pictures of various houses on Government and Dauphin streets.  The FBI alleges that Cannon, 62, expressed an interest in pictures of children from ages 10 to 16 in his communication with the Fairhope man and that he said he had about 25 albums of pictures. He asked the Fairhope man if he swapped pictures.  “Hope you have pics for me, i added you to see my pics So far i posted, kisses,” the user wrote on Jan. 23, according to the criminal complaint.  The agent wrote in the affidavit that Facebook disabled the “Terry Lewis” account more than once but that Cannon kept it online by using different user IDs.

Jumpin jehosaphat.  What people do.
