ELCA Pastor Charged with Child Porn



Jules Erickson

The Rev. Dr. Jules Erickson is Senior Pastor of All Saints Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove. Her idea of a healthy congregation is simple. When the leadership is healthy, happy, non-anxious, and well-balanced – like the Dog Whisperer, Caesar Milan recommends – then the congregation follows suit. Pastor Erickson is the Lead Sheep Dog. She has a registered Pet Partner Therapy Dog (Cooper) who is five years old and helps her in her ministry. FaithStreet will allow Pastor Bill Helker to have a bio here in the near future. Stay posted for updates to this app. Thank you.

Cottage Grove Pastor Admits to Making Child Porn Using Photos of Kids at Church


October 31, 2016 06:52 PM
A pastor at a Cottage Grove church who has been charged with possessing child pornography told investigators that he took innocent photos of children at the church and turned them into graphic images.
The investigation began Oct. 21 after the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received CyberTip Reports from both Facebook and Instagram saying a user was suspected of possessing child porn.
The Minnesota BCA also received CyberTip Reports about another suspect believed to be living in Finland, saying the two suspects appeared to be exchanging child porn via instant messaging on Facebook or Instagram on June 26.
The three photos involved girls as young as possibly 5 years old.
