    WREG: Only on 3: Teacher, Preacher Indicted for Child Exploitation (Nov 16 2012)

    It was the third day of school at Victory Christian Academy in New Albany when a father, who we’re not identifying in order to protect his daughter, says she got a Facebook message from her teacher 25-year-old Benjamin Bishop. “He asked her to get on an app called Voxer and it is a highly encrypted cell phone app,” he said. “It’s very hard to trace. As a matter of fact police could not even pull those messages off of her phone they had to have the phone itself.” He says more than a dozen messages were exchanged between his daughter and Bishop. He found them on his daughter’s phone after she confided in a family member. The messages are so sexually explicit, he says, he doesn’t feel comfortable sharing them. According to the indictment Bishop’s messages show he tried to meet up with the teen “for the purpose of engaging in sexually explicit conduct.”
