“He told us that he used them to live a different lifestyle, meet guys and for ‘lustful intentions,'” the agent reported. “He said in return for photos, he would send the Facebook friends naked photos of a female, which did not show her face. He said he found the pictures of the female on the Internet. He admitted that he selected these particular pictures of the female because they looked homemade.

“He said that he saw it as a challenge to get the photographs of his Facebook friends,” the agent reported. “At the end of the interview, he said that he obtained the photographs of minors out of ‘curiosity.'”

The agent reported one boy who was asked to send “naughty” photos was 13 at the time. That boy did not send any.

Daniel Mooneyham was a youth minister at a Lexington church until he was charged in Garvin County in 2007 with embezzlement, according to the FBI agent's affidavit. He was put on probation in 2008 and ordered to pay more than $19,000 in restitution, court records show.

His wife told the FBI this year that he still was a Sunday school teacher at the Lexington church and still interacted with youth there. Before his arrest last week, he had been scheduled to attend a church youth camp this week.

Court papers did not identify the church.
