SPRINGDALE – A former longtime Southern Baptist preacher whose ministry stalled 18 years ago when he went to prison for possessing child pornography is back in jail, this time for allegedly trying to meet a 14-year-old boy for sex. 

Timothy Lee Reddin, 67, was arrested Aug. 3 on a federal warrant for attempted coercion and enticement of a minor. According to arrest documents, Reddin messaged an undercover Homeland Security Investigations agent posing online as an underage male to arrange a meeting for sex.

According to a church website and local media, Reddin is part-time pastor of Turner Street Baptist Church in Springdale, a congregation affiliated with the Baptist Missionary Association of America, a network of about 1,200 conservative Baptist churches based in Conway.
