PROSPER, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The president of the Prosper ISD school board has been arrested and charged with indecency with a child/sexual contact.

Drew Wilborn, 43, was arrested late Wednesday afternoon by the Dallas Police Department. His bail has been set at $50,000.

Dallas police said they received information on April 14, 2022, regarding a 16-year-old being inappropriately touched by Wilborn, who was an executive pastor at Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church. 

An investigation determined the crime occurred and a warrant was obtained for Wilborn. While the investigation was happening, Wilborn was placed on leave and suspended. Since then, Wilborn was terminated from his position within the church. 

"We condemn abuse in any form and are profoundly committed to the safety and welfare of our entire church community," the church said in a statement. "In addition to policies in place to protect men, women and children who attend Antioch Church, we require all our staff and volunteers to undergo rigorous screenings, including regular criminal record and background checks, and complete mandatory training to help maintain a safe environment."

The church said they are cooperating with law enforcement and encourages those with more information to contact authorities.

The school district said they believe the situation doesn't involve any Prosper ISD students and that they were completely unaware of the allegations against Willborn until after his arrest by Dallas police.

On Thursday, Prosper ISD said Wilborn submitted his resignation from the board, effective immediately. There will be a special board meeting on Jan. 31 to determine the best course of action regarding the replacement of the vacated position.

"We feel the same shock as our community," the school district said in a statement. "The remaining members of the Board of Trustees want to reassure our community that we are determined to move forward together to re-establish the trust that our community deserves. Our children deserve the best from us so that they can see the best in themselves."

Wilborn was elected to the board in 2021 and his term was supposed to run until 2024.
