Rodney Earl Key was sentenced to 30 years in prison in 2001 after pleading guilty to child abuse by a parent. After being denied parole twice, it was granted and he was released in April and put "under supervision".
We can only assume that the supervision didn't involve enough of the supervision that Key needed (and would have certainly found while behind bars) since he once again has been arrested for charges involving a child.
Police said Rodney Earl Key, 46, was in the sanctuary at the St. James Church in the 200 block of S. Augusta Ave. with an 11-year-old girl on Jan. 3 when he put her on his lap and put her hand up her dress, records show.
The girl asked Key what he was doing and he said he was "going to give her a spanking but he couldn't because she was too sweet," according to charging documents. He then told her that she was to keep the touching to themselves
