Youth Pastor Charged with Giving Alcohol to Teenage Girls, One Victim Says He Tried to Molest Her

UPDATE: 7:40 P.M. – Church officials have confirmed that Jared Thomas resigned on September 6th, just one day after the incident took place.

BROOKSVILLE – A Youth Pastor for First Baptist Church if Ridge Manor is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, after he allegedly provided alcohol to his own daughter and one of her friends. But one victim says he molested her during the violent incident that occurred last month on Campbell Drive.

According to officials, deputies responded to the residence after receiving reports of a poissible burglary. Upon arrival they discovered a broken window and blood drops on the floor and bathroom sink.

Through their investigation, deputies spoke with the three female teenagers who claimed 34-year-old Jared Michael Thomas, father to two of the girls, dropped them off at the unrelated female victim’s home. Thomas followed the girls inside the home but then left to pick up alcohol from a local store and later returned. That’s when the unrelated victim says Thomas jumped on the bed with all three girls and grabbed her buttocks. The victim says Thomas poured some alcohol into a McDonald’s cup and handed to her to drink, which she only took a few sips.Jared continued to touch the victim’s buttocks but eventually told his daughters that it was time to leave. Due to Thomas’ drinking, neither of his daughters wanted to drive home with their father. That’s when he became enraged and chased his daughters around the car before they ran back inside and locked Thomas out. Now even more furious, Thomas broke a window and gained entry into the residence. Thomas then located his daughters hiding in closet and proceeded to grab them and drag them to the car. Thomas drove off but when he reached a stop sign, the girls jumped out and ran away.

The unrelated victim also alleged that Thomas whispered in her ear that he was “Going to F**k her.” He again yelled the same thing through a sliding glass door as he was trying to break into the home.

We spoke to Jason Sager who says he took over coaching a basketball team the girls play on together that Thomas used to coach before the incident. Sager says he and his wife have been helping the girl who is “going through a rough time at home.”

After a month since the incident occurred, Thomas was finally booked into the Hernando County Jail on Sunday and charged with 2-counts of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. He posted a $2,000 bond later the same day.

We tried reaching out to the Church for comment but they have not returned our calls.

It is not known if Thomas will face additional charges or if he is still employed as a youth pastor.

  • I cannot believe how judgemental people are. We all know that media has a way of blowing things out of proportion and getting the story all messed up. I heard that the alleged victim is an 18 year old senior who was actually trying to pursue a homosexual relationship with the young pastor’s daughter who is only a barely 15 year old sophmore. That is sad. Probably a lot of munipulation going on for such a young man who’s daughter is so close in age. Sounds like immaturity and some poor judgement but definately not criminal.

  • I watched the video where this pedophile steals my black culture. A PROUD BLACK DOCTOR AM OFFENDED BY THIS. I have seen nothing more offensive than this FLORIDA NEWS, THIS PEDOPHILE FILTH WRESTING FLORIDA FROM OUR HANDS, stealing the Christianity & rap music, & WE DEBATE STEREOTYPES? The filth keeps spreading because NO ONE IS WILLING TO ADMIT WE NEED MORE BIRTH CONTROL! Florida is guilty of HAVING NO NEWS EXCEPT FOR PEDOPHILES & NAZIS WHO WORSHIP HITLER. I ONLY SAY Hitler SO MORE PEOPLE WOULD SEE THIS I JUST WANT TO SAY THE TRUTH AND THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE NOT JUST Hitler. It doesn’t matter who the NAZIS killed, why the did, how they did it or even how many. You cannot judge how “evil” or how insane a group was by how many lives were lost as a result. Hatred is Hatred and that is always “bad”. There is a certain point where the dissemination of horror and hate is TOO much to classify one person as more “evil” based off EGGREGIOUS body count or how the people were killed. The truth is that you can kill one or one million people but you can’t regard the larger number as worse because killing is killing. (This is not to excuse people or to make bad seem good but what I am about to say is the unvarnished truth (just as in example) nearly half of the members of the Nazi regime were forced to support them or they would face death. It was total propoganda. ) WE CAN’T SIT & DEBATE WHO STEREOTYPES NAZIS & PEDOPHILES! WE HAVE TO REMEMBER TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN, & WE NEED TO PUT STRONG RESTRICTIONS ON ALL CRIMINALS! WE NEED TO KEEP THEM BEHIND BARS FOR ALL TIME.

  • Amy, so what are you saying a female should not be protected before hand if she gets raped and pregnated by a monster? She should get an abortion if that happens? Isn’t that the new law? You are missing the point. What about the poor mentally disabled females that get sexually abused in the world. Just because you don’t agree with someone doesn’t give you low IQ that is why I am a proud American Girl!🇺🇸

    Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 9:40 am
    • Actually that not is what I said. Let me make it clear, so you understand that IQ thing….. If a woman decides not to get laid before she gets married said woman may choose not to take birth control…Taking birth control because you might get raped is asinine. Your insinuating all females should be on birth control…Liberal minds are week minds…Birth control and abortions are personal choices….But mandating BC because you might get raped is plain stupid.

      Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 3:43 pm
      • Except believing that “most women are getting laid anyway,” manufacturers of BC work together with schools & potential associations of sexual education with this mentality & in fact support this reputable position, say some whom cite the well-documented benefits of being sexually active. It is an observation of want of intelligence, through the meniscus of incipient decay. Without birth control, & the application of outsourcing the doctors & other comprehensive émigrés from lands to the far East of Florida’s golden coastline, my various reputable sources tell me all women, especially WCCFs will be immediately acquitted to put it mildly, with a spectacular living, wropt in mystery. Intimately familiar with her world the mysteriously combated woman sets out to astonish herself with her skill, or dies slowly in the somnolent days of her life throwing in hard drinking parties, cards, marijuana, pleasing the financiers of the Floridian experiment which is suspended by supplication to under cooked philosophies symptomatic of an unhealthy plutocracy, warping the understanding of birth control through an illusion of expenditure to yield the oats from the chaff.

  • Thank you J. This is the “sexual risky behavior” noted by our President that can ruin a girls life. Not to mention drug date rape and many other reasons. It is our religious freedom and right to be protected from unwanted sex . Hey, my belief is for a girl to wait until she’s married but our society of bad people out there only care about their needs and not the life long consequences for the girl.

  • Lawyers will talk, deals will be made. A judge will release him after a plea deal. I firmly believe that if a judge releases someone on a charge like this the judge should be held responsible if the perp commits a similar crime. Tried of hearing about dip sh*ts like this doing this over and over again.

    Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 8:23 am
    • How are they protected from these predators by birth control ? Ignorance is your whole statement !! These are monsters that attack innocent woman and children. Has nothing to do with birth control !!

  • This whole episode stinks. Why a month before any action by law enforcement with clear evidence? Why only minimal charges? Why wasn’t child protective services involved immediately? According to Tom, WCCMs are being persecuted. Sure sounds like this one is being protected.

        Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 3:43 pm
        • asking questions about a stance that you initiated, and which was painted with a pretty broad brush yourself, is not the same as calling all muslims terrorists. how can you not see that?

          Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 3:44 pm
            • but she didn’t say that. she said that it seemed like that particular dude was protected, rather than persecuted.

              but making a false equivalency to saying an entire race are terrorists is idiotic. that metaphor doesn’t wash. it just seems like you’re way too sensitive.

              YOU were the one who claimed that WCCMs were all treated unfairly. THAT was like saying an entire group is X.

              don’t pretend to condescend to me when you can barely wrap your comprehension around that.

              Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 4:31 pm
          • so you don’t have time to explain anything to me, but i have to educate you?

            the point of saying a whole lot of molesters and predators are wccms, was to show how foolish it is to lump them all together, just as it’s foolish to think all muslims are terrorists. so you see, you’ve misunderstood me to the point of offense due to your lack of comprehension, when even you admit that lumping groups together is a bad practice.

            my other point was that the original commenter never said such a thing, they only questioned his lax treatment and pointed out that not all wccms are persecuted as terribly as you alluded to in your op ed. in fact, this one seemed to be protected. they never stated that all wccms are predators, but you seemed to think they did and then lept to the muslim comparison for no purpose other than to be outrageous and silence the point of the original comment.

            this will be the last time i ever explain anything to you, when you could obviously just step back and re read some things until you understand completely what’s going on.

            i think you are too thin skinned for this industry, and i don’t think you should attack your readers in the comments. it almost always make your case worse.

    • This is coming from a WCAF. That is a white conservative atheist female…Men have ben emasculated for decades…The laws of nature dictate males are hunters, gathers and protectors. …The women are there to bare and nurture…There are actually very few alpha females. In a liberals mind she would be called a bully. Ladies are no longer ladies and very few gentleman exsist.The one thing you have to agree Islam is correct about is a pervert like this should be stoned to death…So Sophia, When is the last time a door was held open for you? My best guess a long time ago if ever, that WCCM would not want to be accused of sexual harassment.That liberal would say do it foe yourself.

      Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 10:52 pm
      • When you say women are there to bare and nurture, do you mean bare their arse?

        Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 6:37 am
      • Usually when it is mentioned that men are hunters, it is stated that women are gatherers. How narrow can you define and delineate the genders? While you appear to be assigning the female gender into a secondary category, you suggest that men are incapable of nurture. Are men incapable of nurture?

        Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 7:36 am
        • Well women are gatherers and men are hunters do this make your weak mind feel better? Of course men can nurture…take daughters to ballet, sons little league…give kids bathes, kiss a skinned knee…Guess what most kids are raised in single households and approx 20% by single fathers…

          Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 3:55 pm
  • Once again a Jesus loving hypocrite who will tell you how your going to burn in Hell for just about anything he doesn’t agree with then goes out and does crap like this. Just amazing but hey he will be square with God just by following the proper dogma asking for forgiveness and sucking up to Jesus while his victim deals with this for life. But then again we are talking about a God who destroyed two cities for the wickedness off the residents then allowed the daughters of the only man worth of being spared to both get their father drunk, have sex with him and father their children. Hummmmm sounds familiar maybe he was just following Lotts example

    Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 6:21 am
  • With his OWN daughters??!?!?
    What a sick FREAK of life!!
    His wife should divorce him!!

    Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 4:55 am
    • UM I think you should reread that story. If you were referring to the police report, though they were using loose terms like “girl” and not many specifics for the sake of the privacy of minors, they still described which was which. There were two daughters and an “unrelated victim”, who was on the girls basketball team. The girl mentioned in the title is not one of his daughters, but it’s still disappointing that anything like this happened.
      If you were referring to the story George was referencing, the wife had turned to salt.

      Thursday, 12 October 2017, 8:34 pm
      • And in that story, (the biblical one) the daughters initiated it. The father was drunk and kind of taken advantage of if I recall. Maybe the salt was a metaphor? I think I need to reread that story.

    Monday, 9 October 2017, 8:24 pm
    • The youth pastor was already trying to use his gun and bible. He used one , to make way for the other. Ultimately, there’s no amount of scripture, no amount of tithes , no amount of praying or going to church that’s going to mask ‘This man of God’s ‘ attachment to temporary sense gratification ( never mind being a felony) . If he were a truly realized being , he would’ve extinguished those petty sense gratifications long ago . A true devotee of Jesus’s teachings would be beyond acting wholesomely or unwholesomely …………this individual would be IN the world , but not OF it .

      Tuesday, 10 October 2017, 12:24 pm
  • Kay, nah you didn’t miss anything with the viagrandparents comment, next we will have Tina on here saying he must have had a brain injury sometime. If guilty, he needs to be put in jail, his wife should leave and protect his children, glad I don’t trust most churches, lots of false prophets out there. What a real piece of pond scum! !.
