A family was surprised to learn that a fellow church member who befriended their daughter, molested her.

29-year-old Corey Lamar Hall, befriended the 15-year-old girl at the Shiloh Christian Center church, which is located at 3900 Sarno Road in Melbourne, Florida.

Over several months, the two exchanged phone calls and text messages, cultivating into a closer relationship. At some point, Hall sent the juvenile explicit pictures and/or videos via his cell phone.

One day, after attending a church function, Hall committed a lewd and lascivious molestation act on the 15-year-old girl. The communication between Hall and the juvenile continued until a family member of the teen became aware of the relationship.

When confronted, the teen told the adult about the relationship, and the adult immediately contacted the Melbourne Police Department to report the incident.

After completing the investigation, Hall was arrested at his home. He was taken into custody without incident, and charged with lewd and lascivious battery, lewd and lascivious molestation, and transmission of
pornography via computer to a child.

He was transported to the Brevard County Detention Center.
