ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- A former Ballwin cub scout leader has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Jeffrey Bainter, 41, was charged with four counts of possessing child pornography and two counts of promoting child porn.

Bainer was a scout leader with Cub Scout Pack-627, which met at Holy Infant Church in Ballwin. Bainter was also a former soccer coach for a church youth team.

Soon after his arrest, the church and scouting officials told parents about the allegations.

“We had a meeting with the parents in conjunction with the pastoral staff of Holy Infant on Monday night,” said Boy Scouts Spokesperson Joe Mueller. “Every leader every parent that had questions we could meet with them have face to face conversations.”

Boy scout officials said Bainter passed a background check. Immediately after his arrest, his certification to work as a scout leader was revoked.
