Florida pastor accused of taking pic up parishioner’s dress

DELTONA, Fla. (AP) — A pastor in Florida is under arrest and out of a job after allegedly recording images under the dress of a parishioner as she bent over to put a child in a car seat.

Thirty-one-year-old Brian “Rick” Kenyon Jr., formerly with the Florida Church of Christ, was arrested Thursday afternoon on a charge of video voyeurism.

Volusia County Sheriff’s spokesman Andrew Gant tells The Daytona Beach News-Journal that the 41-year-old woman reported the incident on April 24, telling investigators it happened two weeks earlier when she attended a service at the Church of Christ of Deltona.

“The victim said she was meeting with Kenyon in his office along with his children, and he asked her to put his youngest child into a car seat,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post. “As she bent over to do so, she felt skin against her leg, turned around and found Kenyon bent over directly behind her. She noticed he was holding his cell phone and it had a red light on.”

An arrest report says that she felt skin against her leg and turned to see Kenyon holding his cellphone.

Gant said Kenyon has been “removed” from the church.

Jail records don’t list a lawyer.
