LDS Missionary In Missouri Held On Sex Charges
Salt Lake Tribune 24Apr00 N1

HAZELWOOD, MISSOURI -- The Tribune reports that an LDS missionary serving in Hazelwood, Missouri has been arrested on three charges of sexual misconduct. Elder Kevin Gill, 23, of Littleton, Colorado, was arrested after he exposed himself to fifth- and sixth-grad girls at McNair Elementary School.

The girls' parents complained to police, who arrested Gill on Thursday. They were able to track Gill down after someone got a partial license plate number following the incident. Gill did not make any physical contact with the girls, according to the report, which the Tribune credits to Kevin Cantera.

LDS Church spokesperson Dale Bills told the Tribune Sunday that if the charges prove accurate, the Church may take disciplinary action. "Our missionaries are expected to live up to the highest ethical and moral standards," said Bills, "A missionary who breaks the law faces church discipline in addition to any legal punishment."
