Alabama Church Leader Charged with Sexually Abusing Member of Her Youth Group
A youth leader at a church in Albertville, Alabama, has been arrested on charges that she sexually abused a 15-year-old male who attended her youth group.
Allison Brianna Cookston Stone, 26, a youth leader at Church of God of Union Assembly in Albertville, was arrested Feb. 23 and charged with second-degree sodomy and second-degree sexual abuse, The Gadsden Times reported. She was released after posting a $60,000 bond.
Marshall County Sheriff Phil Sims said at a press conference that parents of the alleged victim, who attends Boaz High School, were unaware of his sexual relationship with Stone.
Officials said there is no evidence the alleged sexual contact took place at the church but said the abuse had been going on “for some time.”
