Pastor pleads guilty to sex charges
WILMINGTON, Delaware -- A 59-year-old pastor pleaded guilty in Superior Court today to groping two male church members, one a teen-ager, earlier this year.
Talbert L. Gwynn, pastor of Wilmington Church of Christ, faces up to two years in prison when he is sentenced in January on two counts of third-degree unlawful sexual contact.
He will also have to register as a Tier 1 sex offender.
According to police, Gwynn grabbed a 14-year-old boy’s genitals in February, when the boy was staying at Gwynn’s house.
That same month, Gwynn grabbed a 25-year-old man, who was at his house for Bible study, kissed him on the lips and then hugged him, police said. As the man pulled away, Gwynn placed his hands under the man’s shirt, then grabbed his buttocks.
