Virginia youth pastor accused of trying to entice preteen girl in online sex sting

Published

A Virginia youth pastor has been charged with trying to sexually entice an undercover police officer posing as a preteen girl.

Authorities said 30-year-old Deric Wallace Peacock engaged in sexually explicit conversation online with officers he believed to be a 12-year-old girl.

Peacock was arrested last week on five felony counts — sexual solicitation of a minor by electronic means, requesting a minor to fondle her own sexual or genital parts, and three counts of exposing his sexual or genital parts to a minor – as part of an online sting.

He was held without bond at the Montgomery County Jail.

Peacock was first suspended and placed on administrative leave from his job as children, youth, and discipleship pastor at Church of God South Hopewell.

But the church’s pastor, Thurman Collier, said Peacock had since been dismissed from his job.

“There has been no indication what so ever, anything has happened here at the church,” Collier said.

The church website, which has since been taken down, showed Peacock had worked there since last year.

Peacock and his wife had been foster parents since 2008, the website showed.

Published

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace offered her analysis after the day of televised hearings in the impeachment inquiry.

Wallace, who served as White House communications director under President George W. Bush, drew upon her experience as a top Republican strategist.

"Listen, I haven’t spent a nanosecond in a courtroom, but I’ve spent my career in the court of public opinion. And if you look at what the Democrats have set out to do and you look at why this has swung public opinion in a way the Mueller probe never did is that they have laid brick on top of brick on top of brick," Wallace explained.

Room erupts in laughter as Democrat Peter Welch destroys Jim Jordan during impeachment hearing

Published

on

There was a moment of levity four-hours into the first televised hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the bombastic Freedom Caucus member who was added to the committee at the last moment by Republicans, had argued that the White House whistleblower started the scandal.

"There’s one witness, one witness that they won’t bring in front of us, they won’t bring in front of the American people, and that’s the guy who started it all, the whistleblower," Jordan argued.

Unfortunately for the wrestling coach turned politician, Jordan was followed by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT).
