Former Concord youth pastor sent to prison for molesting boys in his care


By David Whisenant

A former youth pastor in Charlotte and Concord pleaded guilty today to taking indecent liberties with young boys who were in his care.

Judge Erwin Spainhour sentenced Bobby Price to serve an active prison sentence of at least 16 months.

There were lots of tears in that courtroom, under the terms of the plea agreement the judge gave Price as much time as he could, saying this was a heinous crime.

The mother of one of the victims said she felt used and that while trying to protect her child, every Sunday, Sunday night, and Wednesday, she took her little boy in a den of wolves and let him be attacked.

Dozens of family and friends stood in court to support Bobby Price, but when they left, they had not a word to say.
