Child Porn On Church Computer Leads To Guilty Plea

Earlier this week, former Cary youth director Jerrod McCabe admitted to storing inappropriate images of children on his church computer. Arrested in March on 20 counts related to possession of child pornography, McCabe left his job as a youth director at the Raleigh Chinese Christian Church.

He pleaded guilty to three counts related to the sexual exploitation of a minor for the images of 4 to 7 year old girls found on his computer. He was sentenced to probation for a six to 17 month term, must register as a sex offender, enter a program for sex offender and substance abuse treatment and is prohibited from having contact with a child under age 16.

As long as he follows the terms of his probation, McCabe will not serve any time behind bars for the sex offenses.

There was no evidence that McCabe had improperly touched any of the children from the church. Despite leaving his position as the youth director after his arrest, several members of the church, along with his wife, attended court to support McCabe.

Investigators from the Cyber Crimes Unit of the Cary Police Department had been keeping tabs on McCabe for several months. They were able to determine that he was downloading child porn and a search of his computer revealed the stored images.

The former Cary youth director and his wife plan to move to Alabama where McCabe has family. He will have still have to register as a sex offender there and must still conform to the restrictions of his probation or risk going to jail.
