Church can't find background check on man accused of molestation
(WOUB) - Church officials who vouched for a volunteer camp counselor accused of inappropriately touching three young boys at a church camp say they can't find paperwork to support their claim that they performed a background check.

Timothy Keil was charged on Monday with three counts of gross sexual imposition. He denies molesting the boys, and camp officials said they were told that Keil's church, Fairfield Christian Church in Lancaster, ran a background check before he started volunteering at Sunday school classes.

Now Reverend Tom Alexander says the church can't find a record of having done the check in its files or in the files of two companies it hires to screen its volunteers.
