Suspect in child molestation case faces new charge

Stringer arrested on child sexual assault charge stemming from Sweetwater complaint


Her son was devastated after the incident, the boy’s mother told the Democrat, adding that he couldn’t go in his room at first and she had to sell his bed.

Though Stringer claimed to have attended Trinity Christian Academy, according to the Parker County boy’s mother, school officials said he did not.

Stringer may have accompanied a former school coach, who had taken Stringer under his wing, to help out during practices but Stringer never officially volunteered with or worked for the school, school administrator Michael Skaggs said.

Stringer reportedly volunteered for a brief time at Trinity Bible 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.
