According to the criminal complaint, Trueblood was found to be using online chat rooms to solicit child pornography under the handle “PervyPastor.” Investigators also determined some of the improper usage was coming from an IP address associated with the church.

After receiving a tip about the activity, the BCA launched a sting operation which ultimately resulted in criminal charges.
