Former youth pastor charged with fondling boy

Tuesday, December 12, 2000

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

EVERETT -- A former youth pastor has been charged with fondling a 10-year-old boy he met at church.

A charge of first-degree child molestation was filed Monday against Michael J. Babcock, 31, formerly a pastor at Sonrise Chapel.

Under questioning with his lawyer present, Babcock admitted he touched the boy sexually during a sleepover at his home in July 1999, Snohomish County Deputy Prosecutor Tobin Darrow wrote in documents filed in Superior Court.

Babcock is no longer employed by the church, which the boy's family had attended, Darrow wrote.
