An Albemarle man charged with playing strip poker with four boys while at a retreat at the N.C. Baptist Assembly at Fort Caswell in June 2013 is scheduled to appear in court for an administrative hearing on Monday.
Clyde Wesley Way, 70, was indicted by a Brunswick County grand jury in January 2014, charged with four counts of taking indecent liberties with a child and four counts of indecent exposure, according to indictments.
Way was originally scheduled to go to trial on Sept. 22, 2014, in Brunswick County Superior Court, but the case has since been continued.
Way is charged with exposing himself to four boys, ages 10 to 13, according to indictments. The incidents allegedly occurred during a church retreat at The N.C. Baptist Assembly at Fort Caswell June 24-29, 2013. Arrest warrants state Way played strip poker with the boys.
According to a notice from the Stanly Baptist Association, Way was a volunteer student ministry team leader for the Baptist Association but was removed from his position following the allegations.
Way was released from jail on a $20,000 cash bond after his bond was reduced from a $350,000 secured bond during his first appearance in Brunswick County District Court on July 23, 2013.
Assistant District Attorney Cathi Radford is the prosecutor for the case. Harold Beaver is representing Way
