Investigators say a retired Clarksville police sergeant and associate pastor is suspected of raping a mentally disabled woman.

Charles Alan Denton, 59, faces two counts of rape in the alleged assault of a 34-year-old woman, after an indictment by the Montgomery County grand jury.

According to our news partners at The Leaf-Chronicle, Denton is an associate pastor at Bethel Baptist Church and had retired from the Clarksville Police Department in June 2008 after 32 years of service.

Denton was arrested Thursday by the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and later posted $20,000 bond.

I have been a member of Bethel Baptist for many years. This is an attack on a church that doesn't deserve it! I support brother Ted always. Also knowing Chuck I can't imagine this being true. Some people just have NO idea how to treat others.

That entire clan is bad news and has been a cover and scam since they moved in and took over with lies... All the family has been in and out of trouble for years and are hiding behind a cross.

That church does NOT deserve the stuff your saying about it! The girl that's accusing this is a basket case. She needs the attention!!! She has accused others of the very same thing. In KY she actually was in trouble for falsely accusing someone. Rather than 1. pretending you know the church or it's members or 2. Judging others why don't you get the facts first. No one is hiding behind a cross!!! Although I'd rather hide behind a cross than stand next to any of you disgusting judgmental A-holes.

I knew there was something weird about him years ago when he developed a really abnormal obsession with wild deer and almost got arrested by the TWRA.

I know that sounds like something made up but it's true. He even brought his 'doe' into the office at work where it ate the secretary's plants and peed on a couple of people's desks. It even got brought up in a lawsuit.

I ha e known the guy for years. He is a sneaky, spineless weasel. He likes to srir things up to make trou le for others and then he acts innocent. I have seen him do it. Always talks about religion and wants you to know how holy he is.

By the way, the deer peed on a pad in the office.

If you are defending him think about it. Do yoh really think this severly handicapped girl made a complaint and they arrestex him on that? Maybe there is more to the case than an idle statement. Maybe thede is proof. Before you start convincing youraelf he is innocent, or guiltg, you might want to, oh I don't know, hear the facts.

But some of you are right, he is a weird little dude.

I cant type for shit. Religion and churches are great but they are maxe up of people. They are mostly good people but there are some bad ones. Sometimes even the good go bad. You can't blame wll white people for slavery, every teenager cor driving too fast, and you can't blame the church for what one creak did (or is alleged to have done).

You also can't blame Chuck for raping a woman just becase he is a sick, sneaky little creak. But remwmber that just because you know him you can't sayhe didn't do it because he's your buddy and you think yh know him so well. He did have a bad reputation years aho of being a man-whore before he found God.

But seriously folks, dont you think there might be more to the story/allegations/proof than the 3 or 4 paragraphs in the paper.

The whole family is sick...the father, the two brothers and the brother in law Denny.Yea they all claim to have found God, when in fact they found a way to milk people for whatever they could get from them. Denny was one of the biggest men in this town to chase women and does everything he can to get there attention. They all found the church and an easy way to make a dollar. Denny even manage to pull some stunts to get control over the church and the pastor before run off. If you are not with them, then you are in big trouble because they will do whatever hey can to bring your world down. Good luck to all the idiots who drank the Kool Aid and helped all of them with there money problems.
