WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The pastor charged with multiple sex crimes, including indecent liberties with a minor, has confessed. That was revealed during Thomas Archie Wiggins Jr.’s first appearance in New Hanover County Court today.
While trying to justify why conditions were needed on Wiggins’s bond, an Assistant District Attorney told the judge Wiggins confessed. The ADA would not tell us the details of the confession.
The alleged crimes date back to 1998, but have just recently come to light. Prosecutors say in the past 24 hours, another victim has come forward.
Wiggins is listed as the pastor of the Faith Temple Church of God in Christ in wilmington and the Bolton Church of God and Christ.
He’s out of jail on a $100,000 bond.
