Evangelist charged with voyeurism could face even more charges

(WMC-TV) - A traveling evangelist charged with secretly filming women with a hidden camera could face new charges in another city.

Sammy Nuckolls was first charged in Gosnell, Arkansas.  Then he was charged in his hometown of Olive Branch, Mississippi.  Thursday, the police department in a second Arkansas town said charges are pending.

Nuckolls was initially charged last week while preaching at a revival at Gosnell Baptist Church.  A church member told investigators she was about to take a shower when she spotted the pen camera poking out of a shaving kit Nuckolls had left in the bathroom.

Nuckolls had been invited to stay with the family instead of a motel.

"It just shocked her that this had happened to her and she would have never expected it to happen," said Gosnell Police Chief Bobby Trump.

Days after making bond on the Gosnell arrest, Nuckolls was charged in Olive Branch with the same crime.  Police in Waldron, Arkansas confirmed the preacher is under investigation there and that charges are pending.

"Ever since this has broke, I've gotten calls from churches as far away as Indiana, Ohio," said Trump.

Trump said the churches are concerned about whether their members may have been spied on while Nuckolls was in town.

Police in Waldron told Action News 5 they are consulting with the prosecutor and charges may be filed as soon as next week.

So far, Nuckolls has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
