Halifax church pastor faces child porn charges

HALIFAX – A part-time pastor at a Baptist church in Halifax has been charged with possessing and accessing child pornography.

Police say 30-year-old Aaron Kenneth Hudgins was arrested after a three-month investigation.

A spokesman for the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches says Hudgins has been working part time as a pastor at the Timberlea Baptist Church, but hasn’t been ordained yet.

Peter Reid, the executive minister of the convention, says the church will conduct its own investigation into the allegations against Hudgins.

Reid says every case is taken very seriously by the Baptist convention.

Hudgins is scheduled to appear in Halifax provincial court on Dec. 10.
