COGIC Pastor Thomas Archie Wiggins Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes with Minor
The Church of God in Christ pastor who was arrested for sex crimes against an underage child, Thomas Archie Wiggins Jr, 54, has been charged with five counts of first-degree sexual offense and five counts of indecent liberties with a minor.
It was only six days before Christmas, when the Church of God in Christ’s General Board announced that Pastor Thomas A. Wiggins, Jr. had been suspended from all pastoral and superintendent duties for the North Carolina Jurisdiction.
“Supt. George W. Davis, Jr. will assume the duties under the leadership of Jurisdictional Bishop Cornelius Anderson, Sr.“, says WECT.
Of course, just to cover their bases, (which doesn’t mean much these days), the General Board released this statement: “The Church of God in Christ has a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct.”
Well, that’s comforting to know.
Wiggins appeared in court this week and plead guilty to the charges while church congregants sat by in the courtroom with their support.
Thanks to HickTown Press for a heads up on this one!
