GODFREY, Ill. (KMOV.com) — A Madison County pastor is charged with distributing pornography after a federal complaint was filed and a year-long investigation. Steven P. Tibbetts, 61, served as the head pastor at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Godfrey. According to his attorney, Tibbetts was ‚Äúreleased of all duties, pastoral or otherwise, at Resurrection Lutheran” Wednesday afternoon. Prosecutors say the investigation of Tibbetts began in August 2019 when the blogging and social network site, Tumblr, provided a cyber tip line report about one of its user accounts to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The account was searched by law enforcement and allegedly found to contain images and videos of nude minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
