I want to give Young Life credit in this case.  It seems that when Young Life became aware of possible sexting going on between one of its leaders, Jason Curry, and three teen boys he had met through Young Life; Young Life fired Mr. Curry from staff and informed police of the alleged crimes.

Police then investigated and arrested Mr. Curry for allegedly sending overtly sexual texts (no images) to three teenage boys, ages 14-17.

Terry Swenson of Young Life stated “”We are saddened by and will not tolerate any behavior by a Young Life leader that is inconsistent with Young Life’s commitment to the safety and well-being of kids.”

You can read a local press report here, and Young Life’s official response here.

I was unable to find any current updates on the case as to whether Mr. Curry has been tried or made a plea.  I’ll be sure to update this post when more information avails itself to the public.
