Thomasville- A Thomas County church youth minister is entering a guilty plea for statutory rape.

     In February, Roderick Suber was indicted for inappropriately touching and having sex with a 16 year old girl. A school counselor told the Thomas Sheriff's Office about the problem last September. Investigator Pascal Autrey says this incident is proof that even people in positions such as Suber's can be dangerous. "Always take precautions as to where your kids are and who they're with. No matter where you go, there's always certain people who are going to be bad apples in the bunch," says Autrey.

     Suber was originally charged with two counts of child molestation in addition to the statutory rape. A judge has set sentencing for the 25 year-old for June 24th.
