Christian School Volunteer Could Face More Indecent Liberties Charges

Posted February 20, 2007

— Two more people have come forward with claims that a former Christian school volunteer might have inappropriately touched them.

The parents of the potential victims notified Raleigh police last week after hearing news that Donald Cameron, 65, rejected a plea deal stemming from two counts of indecent liberties charges.

Wake County District Attorney Melanie Shekita said those alleged incidents occurred in March and April of last year in Cameron's neighborhood with two girls, ages 8 and 9.

The latest claims allege the incidents occurred on the campus of North Raleigh Christian Academy, where Cameron volunteered in the music library. He worked there for two years but never had any direct supervision over students, according to school Superintendent Dr. S.L. Sherrill.

Sherrill would not comment when asked whether he was aware of any allegations made against Cameron while he volunteered at the school. Cameron chose not to return to the school this year, Sherrill said.

Shekita said investigators have identified three additional victims in California who are now grown women.

    Aside from God, the Courts of the State of North Carlina can judge him...

    Only our perfect and holy God can judge Mr. Cameron. However, whether or not Mr. Cameron is a Christian, I do not excuse him or his actions, he may be forgiven, but he must still pay for his actions and the pain that he may have caused. I too will continue praying for the Cameron family as well as the victims and their families. I can't imagine what they must be going through.
    I hope that before you post any comments, you make sure that you only state true facts that you know 100% and that you are clear when you give your opinions, making sure that you have stated them as opinions and not fact.
    Again, my heart and prayers go out to all those involved in this awful circumstance.
    I love you Mrs. Cameron, we all miss you and have been keeping you in our prayers.

    I am a current student at NRCA, and had Mrs. Cameron for a teacher last year. Also, she and Mr. Cameron go to my church, where he is in the church choir. I see them every Sunday sitting together on the end of the 3rd row. Upon hearing the news, I was in utter shock. Mrs. Cameron is one of my favorite teachers and is also only of the most caring that I've ever had. I would bet the world, that she didn't have a clue as to what was going on with her husband. It kills me that people think she had anything to do with this! As for Mr. Cameron, I would always say "hi" to him in the halls, never thinking twice, because he too was always very kind. I will admit that the case seems very serious, considering that two students from my school have also stepped forward, but it still boggles my mind. I still believe that they are both Christians, knowing that Christians are just forgiven and far from perfect. Any mistake is imperfection, and who are we, as sinners, to judge another sinner? cont.

    umm and to no quarter... "stop bringing religion into things" some people are actually religious... i dunno if you woudl know this but truly religious people base their lives around their religion... that is pretty much everything. so yeah they bring religion into everything... i bring religion into everything... and the pray harder comment? that makes absolutely no sense... and yeah people can pray and people can not pray i woudl ay that the person praying is praying harder than the one who isnt.... so yeah when we (religious people) tell eachother to pray it is a reminder, we appreciate it. get it ?

    If you have been a victim of this man, or any other, the best way you can help yourself, and others, is to report the crime. Victims should realize they arent to blame, and the first step is to report the abuse. I would encourage you to call RPD!

    I love this nonsense about "if you were married... love" "would believe your husband..."

    What a bunch of hooey. If you had a suspicion that your spouse was a child abuser, and you didnt do anything about it, simply put, you are an imbecile at best, and criminally liable probably.

    Why do people always say "keep blah blah in my prayers?" Are you going to pray harder than someone else? How ridiculous. Do yourselves a favor and stop bringing religion into everything. Think for yourselves.
