Tennessee Camp Counselor Held On Sex Charges

Posted: Updated:

CARROLLTON, Ga. (AP) - A Tennessee man has been jailed on charges of exposing himself to minors at a west Georgia church camp.

Carroll County officials said 21-year-old Zachary Scott Anderle of Chattanooga, Tenn., was charged with cruelty to children, child molestation, sexual assault and battery.

The Times-Georgian reported Anderle traveled to a Christian camp as a church group leader.

Sheriff's Capt. Jeff Richards said the man was accused of exposing himself to several children and getting into bed naked with one. The man allegedly slapped a child who resisted.

The incident occurred at Woodland Christian Camp and Retreat Center in Temple. The director said a private group rented the camp, and directors support the legal process.

Anderle was jailed without bond. Court records weren't available Saturday to show whether he has a lawyer.
