Pastor accused of sex with student suspended

A former Seaford High School ROTC instructor accused of having sex with a student has been suspended from his position as pastor of a small Georgetown church. Timothy McDorman of Lincoln faces rape and child pornography charges after police say a 16-year-old girl's mother found a text message from McDorman to her daughter's cell phone that indicated that the two were having sex.

Police say the girl had been sending McDorman naked pictures of herself since October when the two began a relationship.

McDorman was the pastor of Eastern Shore Community Church near Georgetown. This week church officials said McDorman has been suspended from ministerial activities and pastoral responsibilities pending the outcome of the criminal case.
