In June, ISP detectives were asked by the Scott County Division of Family and Children to conduct an investigation about a child seduction allegation involving a youth pastor from a Scott County church. State police say the investigation revealed Stout befriended a juvenile in the youth group he was pastoring, then engaged in inappropriate conduct with the juvenile during the month of June. ISP also said some electronic conversations between the two had been tampered with.

Stout was booked into the Scott County Jail after a hearing. ISP says the investigation remains active.
