The 34-year-old was in a sexual relationship with the girl between March 2018 and August 2018 while he was a youth pastor with the Living Waters Church in Estero. He was originally arrested in October and given a no-contact order for his crime.
Police were then called to the Hyatt Place Hotel recently, where they found Peacock and the girl inside his car in the hotel parking lot. Peacock was arrested later that afternoon.
In an interview, the girl admitted that Peacock, on several occasions, touched her genitals and made her touch his, including at his home while his wife was working. Police said that she did not tell the truth at the first interview because she was embarrassed and scared, but she did the second time.
Peacock has since been removed as the youth pastor as well.
