Calvary Baptist Church issued a statement on its website on Aug. 19, which reported that three days earlier Yocum told Senior Pastor Ralph Green he had been "having an inappropriate relationship with someone other than his wife."
Green then suspended Yocum without pay pending further investigation, but after learning it allegedly involved a minor, terminated Yocum's employment effective immediately, according to the church statement.
The statement did not include any additional details on the alleged incident, but in it Green wrote the behavior would not be tolerated and will "follow through with any additional steps that are legally necessary to ensure that justice is served."
Yocum was scheduled for a bail review hearing Tuesday afternoon, but opted to waive it. As of Thursday afternoon, he was being held at the Harford County Detention Center on $100,000 bail.
