Church of the Highlands youth volunteer charged with sexual exploitation of 15 year old

HARRISON, Tennessee (WDEF) – A volunteer for the Youth Ministry at the Church of the Highlands has been charged with the Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.

22 year old Alexander Baggett is from Harrison.

Investigators say he sent nude pictures of himself and then solicited nude photographs through Snapchat.

The affidavit says the investigation started when a 15 year old church member told authorities that another 15 year old had received the pictures from Baggett.

The victim told investigators that Baggett sent photos to her first, and then asked her to send some of her back.

Eventually, she did.

The Detective then asked the girl to call Baggett by phone and tell him her mother discovered the photos.

He then advised her on how to convince her mother that the photos were not of him.

The affidavit quotes Baggett in the call telling her “If God wills it, I will be put in jail for what I have done and if he doesn’t I guess we will be clear.”

Baggett faces a total of five charges and is being held in the Hamilton County Jail of a $250,000.
