SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local church leader is accused of sexually abusing a teenager inside the church several times over the course of a year. The suspect's position at the church may have played a role in the alleged abuse.
26-year-old Bryan Dockery was the Youth Director at Trinity Life Center Church in Shepherdsville. Police say it was during his time in that position that he abused a 15-year-old boy, who is a member of the church. Dockery is charged with the sodomy and sexual abuse of the teen.
Investigators say the abuse started in August of last year and continued through last month. It allegedly happened at the Trinity Life Center Church and at Dockery's home in Shepherdsville.
According to the arrest citation, there were a total of eight separate instances of sexual contact between Dockery and the 15-year-old boy.
WDRB asked the church pastor about the arrest, but he declined to comment. A member of the church did say Dockery is no longer the youth director.
We also stopped by Dockery's home for his side of the story. When WDRB's Jennifer Baileys asked if he lived there, a woman replied, "He's not here right now...We don't have any comment for any news people at all and please don't film my house."
Dockery has posted a $25,000 property bond and is out of the Bullitt County Detention Center.
According to the arrest citation, Dockery is also employed at Aerotech in Louisville. Shepherdsville Police say they are still trying to determine whether there are more victims.
