Alderman Update

The former Ashford Boys and Girls Club Director is facing charges of contributing to the delinquency of minors.

Boys and Girls Clubs across the country are known for trying to provide safe environments for thousands of children. But right here in the Wiregrass, two young 16-year-old girls say they didn't feel safe at the Ashford club at all.

On Wednesday, Joe Bruce Alderman, Jr. was served with two warrants for his arrest.

Alderman was the director of the Ashford Boys and Girls Club when he resigned on Feb. 5, the day after the two girls filed the complaints against him.

Police say once the two girls recorded Alderman's inappropriate sexual comments on their cell phones then called in the authorities.

After a thorough investigation, the Hawk Houston Boys and Girls Club board president says it was time for Alderman to go.

Before this incident, Alderman didn't have a criminal record at all.

Alderman reapplied for employment with the Boys and Girls Club after resigning in February. However, Hawk-Houston’s board president told WTVY that he had no knowledge of that.
