GEORGIA: Cherokee County –

A preacher from Palmetto has been released on bond from a jail in Georgia on charges of having sex with two juveniles.

Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Jay Baker said Rev. Derek Gillett, 38, was released Wednesday on $50,000 bond from the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center.

Gillett, the son of well-known Parrish pastor William “Brother Bud” Gillett, was arrested Friday on two counts of aggravated child molestation and two counts of sodomy. Gillett, who grew up in Palmetto, had recently founded a church in Georgia and before that was youth director at another Georgia church.

He is accused of molesting two juveniles for “some time,” according to sheriff’s reports. Baker has said the alleged victims were not members of Gillett’s congregation.
