Church youth director accused of hiding camera in church bathroom faces more charges: NorthEscambia.com
Additional charges have been filed against the former youth director of the Calvary Baptist Church accused of filming people in a toilet.
David Patrick Nims, 37, has been arrested on eight additional counts of video voyeurism. He remains in the Escambia County Jail Tuesday morning on $ 80,000 bail.
Nims was first arrested on June 7 after the discovery of a CCTV camera hidden in a church toilet. In a video, investigators said Nims could be seen in a video clip placing the camera in the toilet, and his face could clearly be seen as he adjusted the camera.
The sheriff’s office also served a search warrant at Nims’ home in the 7400 block of Hidden Valley Road as part of their investigation and seized several electronic items.
Nîmes was arrested again on June 11, charged with possession of child pornography. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said a laptop computer containing more than 100 child pornography files had been discovered. Investigators said none of the child victims in the files appear to have a local connection, but instead it appears the images were downloaded from the internet. ECSO said some of the internet files showed children under five being sexually assaulted.
His latest arrest stems from that search warrant, and storage devices contained videos of eight people, at least three of whom were minors, according to ECSO. The file’s timestamps indicated that the videos were made on March 12 and 27. They were reportedly taken at church, at his home and at his wife’s employer.
