Youth Pastor Sentenced on Teen Sex Charges, Wife Brags that Victim “Apologized” to Her

WTF?  Former Word of Life youth minister William David Webb, 36-year-old son of Senior Pastor Scott Webb, was sentenced today for transporting a 15-year-old girl across state lines for sex.  He pleaded guilty back in May in exchange for a five-year sentence.  He’s a child molester (and statutory rapist, although it appears he was never charged with that rape charges were dismissed as part of the plea deal), and his wife is batshit-crazy:

The defendant’s wife of nearly 13 years, Tara Webb, submitted a letter to the court saying she became aware of her husband’s relationship with the victim in August 2007. “He immediately repented and asked my forgiveness,” her letter said. Mrs. Webb said she went to the victim, who worked for her as a volunteer in the church audio department. “She apologized to me and I forgave her,” Mrs. Webb wrote. “I encouraged her and told her to not let it hold her back but to pursue her dreams.” [emphasis mine]

I bet he repented — after he got caught.  And she had the gall to go to the VICTIM, who worked for her, for an apology?  Those two deserve each other.

I hope the VICTIM is able to move on with her life.  I wonder if she’ll ever get an apology — from her molester or his enabler wife.

    I hope she’s moved on to civil court and a lawsuit.

    I hope the Webb childrens grandparents also sue for custody. Mom sounds unbalanced.

    I wish this surprised me. Sort of like LaPierre and Langford. Disgusting, sad and fairly predictable.

    That is so far beyond sick that I have no words.

    Helen, someone in the al.com comments claimed that Mrs. Webb refuses to allow her parents to see their grandchildren because they wouldn’t go along with a cover-up of this crime. If that’s correct, sounds like the kids might very well be better off with them, other things being equal.

  5. Helen says:

    There is a longer story in today’s print edition of the News.

    The victim’s uncle adds that the Senior Webb was told about the incident and promised to keep his son away from children. Soon he was right back involved with youth.

    Good luck with that. My experience is that “grandparent’s rights” are a joke.
