A pastor in Florida, US has been sacked and arrested after he allegedly took an upskirt photo of a parishioner while she was helping put his child in the car. 31-year-old Brian 'Rick' Kenyon Jr. was arrested on July 12 after a federal charge of video voyeurism was filed against him.

Andrew Gant, a spokesperson for the Volusia County Sheriff, said that the 41-year-old victim of the pastor's roving eyes went to the authorities and reported the incident on April 24. She told detectives that the incident happened two weeks before that on April 8. She said she had gone to the Church of Christ of Deltona to attend one of the services where she unwittingly became the target of Kenyon voyeurism.

The unnamed woman had been watching the pastor's children on the day when she went for a service at the church. She told the authorities that after the service she went to his office in the back to return his children, the Daily Mail reported.



Kenyon then asked the woman to put his child in the car seat. An arrest report for the pastor that was filed later on says that, as the woman bent down into the car with the child, she felt the sensation of skin against her leg. She turned around immediately and found the pastor holding his phone in his hand. She had been wearing a sundress at the time.

The woman told the police that when she asked Kenyon about what had happened earlier, he said that he had been trying to take a photo of his child. After the incident, the woman went and told her husband about what happened who in turn gathered some of the other congregation members and confronted Kenyon about it.

Gant told reporters that Kenyon has since been "removed" from the church that he had been heading. Initially, the disgraced pastor had tried to deny that he had taken a photo of the woman's behind by putting his cellphone up her dress but, according to the affidavit, he had admitted to having a slight "pornography problem".

After Kenyon finally admitted to taking the photo up the woman's dress, the investigators on the case described the pastor's actions as a "dark moment". He said he has deleted the photo since and has been released after he posted a $2,500 bail.
