A 22-year-old Harrison man who was volunteering at a church was arrested Tuesday and charged with exchanging nude photos with a 15-year-old girl in the congregation, court records show.

Alexander Baggett was serving as a youth ministry volunteer at the Church of the Highlands in Chattanooga when he "solicited and exchanged" the photos with the girl via Snapchat, a social media app, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

The girl's family attended the church.

The photos were exchanged between March and May, according to court records. The church's pastor called the authorities after the girl told another member of the congregation she had received nude photos from Baggett.
