Camden Youth Minister Accused of Relationship with Teen
CAMDEN -- A youth pastor and former mayor of Camden is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a minor.
Court documents state Kevin Reed performed sexual acts with a 17-year-old girl.
We met Kevin Reed in December of 2012, when we did a story about teen suicides.
Then he told us about his position as a youth minister, and told us, he had a lot to be thankful for.
"So many people god for gifts they have and I am, but I thank god for all the struggles I've had. I've grown," said Reed in December of 2012.
Nearly two years later, and the Preble County prosecutors indicted 35-year-old Reed in May.
He's accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-girl.
At the time, he was a youth minister at the Higher Heights Church in Camden.
"It's breaking a lot of trust between adults and trusting anyone in the church now," said Shaelene Banner.
According to court documents, Reed promised the teenager that he would divorce his wife, and marry her.
"He shouldn't say that, teenagers that young and naive they believe stuff like that," said Banner.
But it didn't stop there. Investigators say reed told the teen he was "the mayor of Camden, and had friends in high places."
"He's abusing his authority by a long shot you can't do that," said Banner.
We tried to reach out to reed, but when his wife answered the door, she immediately shut it.
He now faces one count of sexual battery.
And for those who are hearing about this, they just hope the teen and her family can move on.
"I just hope that justice is served and I hope that the families can recover and I hope the the learned his lesson," said Banner
We also spoke off-camera to Reed's church pastor, he told us that he doesn't believe reed is guilty.
Reed's trial is scheduled for July 14.
