The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Coy Privette of Kannapolis, North Carolina, has been arrested and charged with six counts of aiding and abetting prostitution (see story here). Privette was the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Oustanding Alumnus of 2006 (see here). Privette is a former member of the SEBTS Board of Trustees. I do not know Coy Privette, but I will make the following observations: The allegations come from a prostitute who had been accused of stealing checks from Privette. Folks in North Carolina certainly know something about false accusations of sexual impropriety in the wake of the Duke Lacrosse situation. Let us all remember that he is innocent until proven guilty, let us pray for North Carolina Baptists and for SEBTS, and let us act with Christian decorum in the light of these tragic (no matter how it turns out) accusations.
