Former deacon charged in child sexual abuse case approved for bond release


A former deacon indicted in a 15-year-old child sex abuse case, initially held without bond, has been granted bond release.

In 2013, 62-year-old Kevin O’Connor, a deacon at Calvary Temple in Sterling, Virginia, was first accused of sexually abusing a child. Almost two decades after the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office began their initial investigation, he was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual battery by force, aggravated sexual battery while incapacitated and two counts of indecent liberties with a child relative.

Some former church members have described Calvary as a cult, and claim that incidents of sexual and physical abuse have occurred.

Bond documents state O’Connor was required to post $10,000 bond, wear a GPS anklet and have no unsupervised contact with minors.
