Youth for Christ volunteer accused of statutory rape
Posted December 27, 2012
Roxboro, N.C. — A volunteer for the Christian youth group Youth for Christ in Roxboro faces felony charges after he was accused this week of inappropriately touching a girl.
David Neely Solomon, 38, of 641 Surl Mount Tirzah Road in Timberlake, was arrested Tuesday on felony charges of soliciting a child by computer and statutory rape/sex offense of a child under age 14.
Person County Sheriff Dewey Jones said deputies received a complaint on Tuesday from the girl's mother after she found inappropriate material on her daughter's phone.
Solomon was arrested after investigators interviewed him and the girl.
Jones did not say if the girl is involved with Youth for Christ but said the alleged crimes did not happen at the organization's Roxboro office.
Solomon was jailed under a $400,000 bond, but the bond was reduced Thursday to $150,000.
