A cheerful note from Pastor Wayne!
Colorado Springs, Colo. (The Weekly Vice) - Terah Rawlings, a 32-year-old Teacher at Hilltop Baptist School in Colorado Springs was indicted on sex charges after she allegedly carried on a long-term affair with a 15-year-old student - and the school attempted to cover it up.
Two pastors and the school principal were also arrested after they aided in or failed to report the crime.
According to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, Rawlings began a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student in 2007, having sex with the boy at various locations.
Investigators say Rawlings and the victim first had sex inside her car. The pair went on to have sex numerous times throughout the course of their 2 1/2 year relationship. The sexual encounters reportedly took place in Rawlings car, her home and her father's home.
Rawlings was also allegedly seen making out with the boy in a church van during a school trip to Greeley and reportedly sent the boy nude photographs of herself.
Church and school administrators allegedly covered up the relationship until a staff member contacted the Sheriff's office in 2010.
In February, 2011, investigators obtained search warrants for Rawlings' home and the Baptist school where she was a teacher.
After a lengthy investigation, an El Paso grand jury handed down indictments for Rawlings, two pastors involved with the church and the school's principal.
Rawlings was arrested Wednesday on four felony counts of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, four felony counts of sex assault pertaining to a pattern of abuse and a misdemeanor charge of obscenity. She was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
Pastor Franklin "Wayne" Knight, 63, was charged with failure to report child abuse and accessory to a crime. He slithered out of jail on a $2,000 bond.
Pastor "Wayne" is Rawlings uncle.
Associate Pastor Raymond Knight, 57, was charged with failure to report child abuse. He was released after posting a pointless $300 bond.
Ray Knight is Rawlings father.
School Principal Jan Ocvirk, 51, was also charged with failure to report child abuse. She was released after posting a $300 bond.
Hilltop Baptist church closed last year due to rapidly decreasing attendance.
