    Queens Courier: Queens music teacher accused of sleeping with 16-year-old (Dec 20 2012)

    Vaughn McKinney, 58, is accused of starting a relationship with the female student when she was 16 after the two met through a Brooklyn church choir group, led by McKinney’s wife at the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church ... Her mother alleged that after meeting, her daughter spoke with McKinney about needing a job, and the pervy perp said he would give her money in exchange for sex. This continued, and McKinney also provided her with a cell phone, on which the two communicated, gave her an iPod and money to buy clothes.

    DNAInfo: Teacher Seduced 16-Year-Old He Met in Wife's Church Choir, Officials Say (Dec 20 2012)

    The relationship began about March 2011 when the girl — who was a member a Brooklyn church choir led by [Vaughn] McKinney's wife, Patricia — approached McKinney to help her find a job, the victim's mother told investigators. That's when McKinney first allegedly took advantage of the girl, the agency found. He told her "he would be willing to give her money in exchange for sex," the SCI report said. The girl's father told investigators earlier this year that his daughter began having sex with McKinney after she told him she wanted a cell phone she could not afford, according to the report. “If I get you the cell phone, you know what you have to do for it,” McKinney told the victim, according to the SCI report.

    Gothamist: Brooklyn Music Teacher Accused Of Sexually Abusing Choir Girl (Dec 20 2012)

    Also troubling is that the girl's mother says she already knew about the relationship but didn't do anything about it until others, like the pastor, caught on. According to the SCI report (below), "approximately two or three weeks earlier," the mother had been contacted by [Vaughn] McKinney's wife Patricia McKinney, who requested an urgent meeting. They met at a restaurant, where Patricia McKinney showed the mother a phone invoice she'd found in her husband's belongings with the daughter's name on it, and demanded to know why her husband had the bill.
