Shickshinny pastor charged with sexual assault of student while teaching in Chester County


SHICKSHINNY, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The West Goshen Township Police Department says the pastor of Bible Baptist Church in Shickshinny has been arrested for the alleged sexual assault of a first-grader at a Chester County school.

West Goshen Township Police say 63-year-old Randy Boston, of Shickshinny, has been arrested after they received a report of a sexual assault involving Boston and a minor.

The incident occurred in 2008 when the victim was a first-grade student at West Chester Christian School, police say. Police say the victim was assaulted while Boston was a teacher at the school.

The victim told police he was abused as many as three times by Boston during the 2007-2008 school year. Police say the victim recalled one incident when he stuck his tongue out at another student. Boston, who was monitoring the students, saw and ordered the victim to follow him to the gym’s basement, court papers say.

Boston took the victim to a room, shut the door and told him to remove his belt and pull his pants down, police say. Boston then performed oral sex on the victim before ordering the victim to perform oral sex on him, the court says.

During an interview, police asked Boston if he was attracted to little boys. Boston acknowledged that he had been attracted to them in the past, still struggled with his desire toward them and was attracted to elementary school aged children, police say. During the interview police say Boston told them he was attracted to their bodies, specifically their buttocks.

Boston was arrested in Shickshinny on Wednesday. He was arraigned and bail was set at $50,000 cash. Boston was remanded to Chester County Prison. He has been charged with sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and corruption of minors.

West Goshen Police are asking anyone else who may have been victimized by Boston to come forward.

Boston is listed as the current pastor for Bible Baptist Church on the church’s website.
