Man Indicted On Child Molestation Charges Allowed To Return To Church Pulpit

A man indicted for child molestation will be allowed back behind his pulpit at a Smith County church.

Following his May arrest, 57-year-old Jefferson Moore, Junior was barred from any contact with children.

No trial date has yet been set, and District Judge Kerry Russell declared Tuesday Moore can now be around children, if two other adults are present.

This would allow him to reopen his Dogwood City Chapel, where both alleged victims and their parents had attended church.
