Lead Us Not Into Temptation

Virginia pastor Haden Conrad was probably hoping to hear how his rod and his staff comforted the 14-year-old girl he thought he was propositioning (Psalms 23:4).

A Chesapeake pastor recently arrested for computer solicitation committed the crime at the church he worked at, according to deputies. In an affidavit obtained by WAVY.com, a Spotsylvania County sheriff’s deputy and detective conducted an undercover chat investigation July 18, 2012. The deputy went into a Yahoo! chat room and was messaged by a user with the screen name “chiefmojorisin420.”


At first, the chatting was not criminal, the affidavit said. The suspect, later identified as Haden Conrad, said he was a married man who lived about two hours away from the deputy, who was posing as a 14-year-old girl. The suspect was told he was speaking with a teen.


[Conrad] exposed himself via webcam and performed a sex act on himself…

before eventually trying to arrange to meet the fictitious 14-year-old for sex.
