a disturbing footage of a South Carolina church volunteer performing an oral sex act on a 3-year-old child on Sunday.
28-years_old Jacob Robert Lee Hazlett, who works as a volunteer at NewSpring Church in North Charleston, was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor without a bond.
Hazlett was taking charge of a group of children, ages 3 to 5, in "the Tree House" room, when he escorted a 3-years-old boy to the church restroom where he performed oral sex on him and pulled his pants up when he finished.
a camera outside the bathroom caught the whole act indicating that the alleged man did not close the door as the church bathroom doesn't have cameras inside it according to Suzanne Swift, a church spokeswoman.
A letter was sent to parents of preschool children who attend the North Charleston campus.
“NewSpring is steadfastly committed to safety and security, and because of this commitment, we have an extensive screening process for all adults before they are allowed to volunteer with children, birth through 12th grade,” the letter said.
Hazlett faces a minimum of 25 years in prison and a maximum of a life sentence if convicted, the paper reported. No probation or parole may be granted for the offense.
