ST. MARYS, Ga. -- Hiding behind his front door, Deacon Jones Rivers tells Action News he's been framed, and that police allegations claiming he molested at least a 4-year-old and a 7-year-old are false.
"What they accused me of I didn't do," said Rivers. "I can't prove it because they really set me up good."
Rivers says the mother of his child is the accuser.
"It's a woman that I dated and got pregnant," he said.
The Deacon didn't want to show his face and according to police there was much more to hide. Inside Rivers' home, investigators found computer hard drives packed with homemade child pornography. Police also found hundreds of pornographic DVDs, all of which a seven year old victim claims Rivers made him watch.
Neighbors say they are now forced to live in fear.
"I have a niece and she just had a new baby," said Rivers' next door neighbor, who didn't want to reveal her name. "He's never messed with us but that don't mean he wont."
But Deacon Rivers insists he's harmless.
"I want everyone to know the true story of what happened," he said.
Rivers said he would get back in touch with Action News once he speaks with his lawyer.
The St. Marys Police Department believes there could still be more victims out there. They ask that parents of any children who may have come into contact with Rivers to contact them immediately.
