Nassau County, FL - A former youth minister in Nassau County and custodian at Yulee Elementary School has been convicted of charges for sex acts involving children as young as those he worked with.
51-year-old Raymond Gregory was convicted of custodial sexual battery on a child and lewd or lascivious molestation of a minor.
The State Attorney’s Office says he would often take in children in need. Between 2008 and 2009, prosecutors say he allowed a 12-year-old boy to live with him for several months but would require him to perform sexual acts at least once or twice a week. Gregory would give the child money or presents, although the victim was eventually able to move out.
Gregory now faces up to 45 years in prison. He will be sentenced next month.
