"Caudle was the youth minister at First Assembly of God Church in Marengo, Illinois when he was caught in an online sting last year, exposing himself over the Internet, after meeting someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl in an online chat room.
It was really Rock Island police detective Tina Noe.
“During our conversation on five separate times, he masturbated on web cam, and believing I was a 14-year-old child and he was doing this while inside of his church where he was employed,” said Noe.
Caudle cut a plea deal, and potentially faced up to two years in prison. Judge Mike Meersman instead, sentenced Caudle to 75 days in the county jail, 30 months probation, and required him to undergo sex offender therapy, citing his previous clean criminal record and the fact he had not arranged to meet with the undercover officer.
During Tuesday’s hearing, Detective Noe stated that under interrogation, Caudle admitted the webcam masturbation was not a first, but one of several incidents exposing himself to young girls via his church computer. Noe said he told her he had an affinity for girls between the ages of 8 and 15."
This is just disgusting! 75 days with day for day credit is 37.5 days...It is completely obsurd that he received nothing short of a long bass pounding prison sentence.
A youth minister that was admittidly attracted to girls between the ages of 8 and 15 who exposes himself and beats off from a church computer? Really? It was only a matter of time before he tried to meet with her, they only had 5 conversations and was to this level already. I am completely repulsed!

Thank you Rock Island police for paying attention! At least someone is...
The City is broke, we keep giving raises to administration, paying for "K-9 Dogs", chasing away businesses, the Park now offers nothing and now we are providing a safe haven, more or less, for pedophiles....SUPER AWSOMELY WONDERFUL!!!
