St. Mary's Volunteer Arraigned on Child Porn Charges

Mass State Police arrested 20-year-old Woburn man on child pornography charges Tuesday night.

A Woburn man was arraigned this morning on several child pornography charges.

Raymond McAllister, 20, of Woburn, was arrested and charged Tuesday night with dissemination of matter harmful to a minor, enticement of a child, and posing or exhibiting a child in a state of nudity.

McAllister, who was a volunteer at St. Mary's Bible Camp in Winchester, pled not guilty. His bail was set at $10,000 cash, and he was ordered held under house arrest at his parents' home, where all Internet must be removed. He cannot go online either from his laptop or his phone; and he cannot be with children under the age of 18.

The Middlesex District Attorney's office claims McAllister Skyped with a 13-year old boy in Arizona, and asked the boy to disrobe; a sex act allegedly followed.

The DA said McAllister made "substantial admissions" while speaking with police.

The 20-year old nodded to his father upon entering the courtroom. "This is something we don't agree with," said Wayne McAllister.

Raymond McAllister has also been a Little League coach in Woburn and a jiu jitsu instructor.

Next court date: March 7.

The Massachusetts State Police arrested McAllister Tuesday night.

This is an awful situation, one never thinks it will happen in their own back yard, but it does. But the fact that the media is turning this situation into another attack on the church is disgusting. It's another case of the media and the news twisting the story to make more riveting headlines, and it leads to defamation of the church. Yes he was a volunteer at the church, but he was also a little league coach and martial arts teacher. St. Mary's should not be the first word in the title. It's disgusting, misleading and really shows a lot about what is wrong with society today. To shed negative light on a local parish that does so much good work for the town and the community is utterly disturbing. I hope this young man gets the help he needs, and that the media will begin to focus on the situation, and not the fact that the situation can some how on some thread be traced to the church.

I agree 100% with rf, the church should NOT be held responsible for what this monster did. Hopefully he spends many years behind bars. Hopefully he doesn't get put someplace where he is treated with kid gloves, and is treated like the scum that he is.
