Christian school administrator arrested on sex charges in Davidson County

Associated Press

LEXINGTON — The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office says an administrator at a private Christian school and a Sunday school teacher are among three people arrested on sex-related charges.

News outlets report that 42-year-old Jason Wesley Keller of Pfafftown is charged with 10 counts of sexual activity with a student by a school administrator. The Sheriff’s Office says an investigation into Keller began in 2009, nearly a year after the alleged offenses began.

The Dispatch of Lexington reports the Sheriff’s Office also filed multiple sex-related charges against 36-year-old Matthew Ryan Hendrix of Mocksville.

According to his arrest report, Hendrix had inappropriate contact with a 12-year-old girl in June.

Also arrested was 50-year-old Christopher P. Indendi-Kallsen of Lexington on three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
