Local Baptist Church Cracking Down On Sex Offenders

With allegations of child sexual abuse surrounding the Catholic Church, one Kentucky Southern Baptist pastor wants to make sure the same scrutiny doesn't befall the 24 hundred Baptist churches in Kentucky.

Pastor Bill Henard is creating a packet including information on all convicted sex offenders.

He wants to be sure the church employees and volunteers that work with kids are not on any list.

He hopes to have the packets complete by the end of the summer, and wants other states to follow his lead.
