CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) – In January 2012, police say 27-year-old Caleb Sexton met a 12-year-old girl at the Hedstrom Baptist Church, in Cheektowaga, where his father is the pastor. That is where police said Sexton had sexual contact with her on multiple occasions. Police called the crime “disgusting and disturbing.”
Monday, Sexton appeared in court where his hearing was postponed. He has been free since his arraignment months ago. Police tell News 4 the Lancaster man hasn’t been arrested for anything else since he was charged. There is an order of protection at the church and school.
“They gravitate towards these positions of trust and, unfortunately, they betray their trust,” said Cheektowaga Police Assistant Chief James Speyer. “They’re preying on the weakest members of our society, our children.”
