AL – Church employee pleads guilty and walks free; SNAP responds

For immediate release: Wednesday September 11, 2013

Statement by Barbara Dorris, Outreach Director, 314-862-7688

An Alabama church employee who pled guilty to sexually abusing a 17-year-old girl won’t be going to prison.

Instead, Blake Jerrod Earl will be serving a year of unsupervised probation and counseling leaving him on the streets, free to harm children again. 

We urge officials at Solid Rock Christian Center in Huntsville to encourage anyone who witnessed, suspected or experienced abuse to come forward and inform the authorities. As victims, we sincerely hope that any additional information presented will be used to keep Earl away from children.
