Christian Group President Facing Prostitution Charges
Former state legislator Coy C. Privette – a Cabarrus County commissioner, retired Baptist minister and president of the Christian Action League of North Carolina – was charged Thursday with soliciting prostitution, authorities said.
Privette, 74, of Kannapolis, was charged with six counts of misdemeanor aiding and abetting prostitution by renting a hotel room and paying for sexual acts, according to State Bureau of Investigation Agent Kevin Canty.
Tiffany Denise Summers, 32, of Salisbury, was charged with six counts of prostitution, Canty said.
On Thursday, the Christian Action League board of directors suspended Privette, pending the outcome of the investigation. The organization represents the Christian groups' interests in the General Assembly.
“If these allegations are true, then I’m absolutely broken-hearted and extremely disappointed,” said Mark Creech, executive director the Christian Action League.
Privette was the group’s president the past six years. Before that, he served as its executive director for 15 years. Creech said he considers Privette a mentor and a friend.
“It’s hard, it’s hard. But I still want to hear from Mr. Privette,” Creech said.
What's so much worse than the actual act, is those that defend the man. What fucking side of the story is this asshole going to have? "I thought the cop was a prostitute."?
