Child molester gets 10 years


Stringer’s relationships with other young teen boys during recent years concerned multiple parents who contacted the Democrat after Stringer’s arrest last year.

Two families told the Democrat that, prior to the incident last year, Stringer volunteered for a short time with Trinity Bible Church and was around young boys.

One father said he brought concerns of behavior he believed to be innappropriate, though not illegal, to the attention of church leaders more than once over a several month time period before Stringer left the church.

Asked about Stringer’s role and time with the church, Executive Pastor Judd Vier declined to comment and said information had been turned over to police.

The church has an extensive volunteer policy and potential volunteers must fill out an application and go through an interview process and background check, according to Vier. A background check was completed on Stringer, he said.
