John Dolard, Accused Child Rapist and Church Choir Volunteer: Quite the Mugshot

Police have arrested a church choir volunteer who they say has confessed to sexually assaulting an eight-year-old boy.

John Dolard, 53, met the boy at the unnamed Houston church they both attended, police say.

He asked the boy's mother if he could take the child swimming at a relative's house near Richmond. He assaulted him there, police say, and the boy told his mother about it the next day.

A search began for Dolard, and he was eventually arrested at a Houston home yesterday. (His driver's license lists a home address in Richmond.)

He is in Fort Bend County Jail on a $125,000 bond.
