Church Youth Director Accused Of Hiding Camera In Church Bathroom Facing More Charges

July 20, 2021

Additional charges have been filed against the former Calvary Baptist Church youth director accused of video recording people inside a restroom.

David Patrick Nims, 37, was arrested  on eight additional counts of video voyeurism. He remain in the Escambia County Jail  Tuesday morning with bond set at $80,000.

Nims was first arrested  June 7 after a hidden video surveillance camera was found in a church bathroom. In one video, investigators said Nims could be seen in a video clip placing the camera in the restroom, and his face could clearly be seen as he adjusted the camera.

The sheriff’s office also served a search warrant at Nims’ home in the 7400 block of Hidden Valley Road as part of their investigation and seized multiple electronic items.

Nimes was arrested again on June 11, charged with possession of child pornography. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said a laptop containing more than 100 child pornography files discovered. Investigators said none of the child victims in the files appear to have a local connection but instead it appeared the images were downloaded from the internet. ECSO said some of the files from the internet depicted children under five being sexually battered.

His latest arrest stems from that search warrant, and storage devices were found to contain videos of eight people, at least three of which were juveniles, according to ECSO. The  file timestamps indicated the videos were made on March 12 and March 27. They were allegedly taken at the church, his home and his wife’s employer.

    IF YOU DON’T REPENT YOU WILL NOT BE FORGIVEN. Forgiveness comes after repentance. If a person is not repentant they are not forgiven.

    I’m glad that he was caught. I wish it had never happened. I feel so bad for the victims and their families.

    Pedophiles are everywhere and too often show up working with Youth in some directive capacity where they are presented with the opportunity to act out their deviance. I cannot believe that no one at this church saw any red flags. At some point, this one will be set free; however, children who are violated serve a life sentence. What is this church, and all churches going to do to ensure the safety of children?

    You have to wonder what was the choice that opened this “door” into this man’s life? I would have to think if he started exploring into this darkness, he never imagined that he would become so entrenched as to set up cameras in a church. The thought that “Sin will take you further than you ever wanted to go” comes to mind. The Bible says to be sure your sins will find you out! This is a prime example. God bless all the families involved in this including his.

    To all the families, including his own, I am so sorry. I can’t imagine what you are all going through. Praying for everyone involved.

    Hopefully, he will spend a long and miserable time in prison. He deserves a mill Stone tied around his neck and lowered in about 7 feet of water. Breathable air within reach but unattainable. Maybe then he will know the helpless feeling these children felt that he enjoyed watching being abused.

    Disgrace to society

    Hopefully this pedophile gets daily reminders of his crimes while in prison.
