One question- why did he have to be a Baptist?
Baptists are congregational and independent, i.e., non-connectional. All pedophiles are not necessarily from congregational (polity) churches, but that polity doesn’t have a means for autocrats who report to no human authority to be policed. Many Baptist (and other congregational polity) churches have pastor/leaders who don’t have a structure in place to handle their falls from grace in an orderly manner with accountability. Sinful men need accountability. It is built in to some polities, but absent from others.
