Youth pastor charged with performing sex acts on teenager

A youth pastor at Bible Way Church has been charged with performing sex acts on a 14-year old girl three separate times. Investigators say 36-year-old Falcon Davis worked at the Augusta church for 2 years.

They say Davis confessed to the crimes. He is now in jail awaiting a bond hearing.

Investigators took him into custody after the girls mother called the Sheriff's Department this weekend. During the investigation they found 37 pages of Yahoo! Messages between Davis and the teenager. Many of them were sexual in nature.

And investigators say the teen eventually told them that Davis came to her house to perform oral sex on her.

They say this case serves as a warning to parents.

"Monitor what your children do, because in all honesty you don't know who they're talking to. It could be a child, or an adult who is a predator of some sort," said Richmond County investigator Earnest Furgeison.

Young people from age five all the way up to 18 are involved in the youth program at Bible Way.

Right now they have no evidence that other children were molested, but they encourage anyone with information about other incidents to step forward.
