Moberly, Mo. - James M. Wilson, pastor of Terrill Road Free Will Baptist Church, has been charged with felony kidnapping in connection with a May incident in Boone County that led to his arrest for child molestation.

Wilson, who is also principal of the Terrill Road Christian School, was charged October 9 with second degree child molestation involving a 16-year-old female student of the school.

The incident allegedly occurred May 6 when, according to a Columbia Police probable cause statement, the girl’s mother dropped her off at a gas station near the Christian school in Moberly and she waited there for Pastor Wilson. Wilson allegedly picked her up around 8 a.m. and drove her to the Motel 6 in Columbia. The girl stated she and Wilson sat on a large bed in the hotel and watched cartoons. She said, according to the statement, that Wilson threw her onto the bed, took off her shirt and began to fondle her breasts. When the girl protested, saying they shouldn’t be doing it because he was married, Wilson stopped touching her and apologized. The two then returned to Moberly where Wilson dropped the girl off at the gas station at about 10:30 a.m.
The victim reported the incident on September 10.

According to Randolph County Sheriff Mark Nichols, Randolph County Prosecuting Attorney Mike Fusselman discussed the case with Boone County officials and decided there was sufficient evidence to support a charge of kidnapping against Wilson. Wilson was arrested Monday night and was released on a $100,000 bond. Wilson is not to have contact with the victim or anyone under the age of 18.
