Stanly County man charged with sex offenses after chaperoning church youth camp

A Stanly County man faces multiple sex offense charges after authorities say he coerced young boys into playing strip poker while chaperoning them on a weeklong youth church camp trip.
Clyde Wesley Way, 68, was charged by the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office with 16 counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, four counts indecent liberties with a child and four counts of employing or permitting a minor to assist in offenses against public morality and decency.
He remained in the Brunswick County jail today under $350,000 secured bond.
Way, of Kirk Avenue in Albemarle, was acting as a chaperone for youth from a Baptist church in Stanly County, according to published reports. He was arrested last week. The camp was held in late June at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly, held at Fort Caswell in Brunswick County.
He was not employed by the North Carolina Baptist Assembly, the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office told news outlets.
The victims were ages 10 to 13.
