SHERIFF'S OFFICE INVESTIGATION RESULTS IN ARREST OF HOUSE OF FAITH YOUTH COORDINATOR
The Tom Green County Sheriff's Office conducted a child crimes investigation that led to the execution of a search warrant on December 29, 2022, in the 1100 block of South David, San Angelo.
As a result of the search warrant, probable cause was developed that led to the issuance of an arrest warrant for James Needham, 28 yoa, for the Possession of Child Pornography.
Subsequent to the search warrant, Mr. Needham was identified as being the Youth Coordinator for the House of Faith Church. At the time of the warrant issuance, the House of Faith Church was notified of the investigation. Mr. Needham was terminated by the House of Faith following their notification.
Mr. Needham surrendered himself to the McCullough County Sheriff's Office on Saturday, December 31, 2022. During the post-search warrant investigation, information was obtained indicating a possibility of inappropriate contact with victims.
If you have reason to believe that you or your child may be a contact victim of Mr. Needham, the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office asks that you contact our Criminal Investigation Division. This can be done on the non-emergency number, 325-655-8111.
Any specific questions of the church should be directed to the Executive Director Marci Menchaca, at the House of Faith contact number, 325-486-8637.
This remains an active investigation.
