Police have arrested Billy Masters, 66, reportedly the preacher at Harvest Baptist Church for first-degree sexual abuse of a 12-year-old boy. What is remarkable is that Masters previously was convicted and served time for sodomy of a child.
In 2001, Masters was reportedly convicted of sodomy against three male victims. He pleaded guilty to three counts of sodomy and one count of sexual abuse. He was sentenced to 15 years for each sodomy charge and 10 years for the sexual abuse count. Because they ran concurrently, he was released in 2007.
Perhaps someone can explain how such a man becomes a preacher again working with children.
