DULUTH, Ga. -- A 28-year-old married church volunteer has been arrested for allegedly exchanging sexually explicit messages with a teenage girl.
Daniel Louis Kent was a leader for the youth department at First Baptist Church of Duluth. He was asked to step down after church officials learned of his interactions with the teen.
According to a police report, the church's youth minister called Gwinnett County DFCS on Aug. 13 to report the relationship between Kent and the 16-year-old victim. Duluth Police detectives met with the girl's mother, who said Kent and the teen began communicating on Snapchat in early July 2015.
