"A former pastor from Hopewell living in Richmond was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison Tuesday on charges of distributing child pornography while he was still on the sex offender registry for a previous offense.

Deric Wallace Peacock, 39, served as youth pastor of a church in Hopewell until 2014, when he was convicted of soliciting an undercover cop he believed to be a 12-year-old girl.

In April 2022, while he was still on the sex offender registry, Peacock was caught using “Wickr” — an encrypted messaging app — to send “images, videos and .gifs depicting the sexual abuse of children” under the username “vapastor.”

According to investigators, at least one of the videos linked directly to Peacock’s account depicted sexual abuse of a child as young as 7 years old. According to court documents, the predators he sent those videos to are as yet unidentified."

Just don't click on them. What am I missing here?
Do I really need to explain to you how threads show up on the first page? Unfortunately- for some unknown reason - this forum does not allow members to hide threads.
