Former volunteer convicted of abusing preschoolers at South Carolina megachurch
from Baptist News Global
A South Carolina jury has found 29-year-old Jacop Hazlett guilty of sexually abusing multiple children while volunteering to keep an eye on preschoolers while their parents worshipped at NewSpring Church, a non-denominational megachurch that originated as a church plant sponsored by the South Carolina Baptist Convention. Hazlett, arrested in November 2018 after a church member came forward saying their child had been abused by one of NewSpring's volunteer childcare workers, was sentenced to 75 years in prison after a two-day trial.
