Authorities are seeking a former Pasadena church youth pastor accused of filming two teen girls in a shower. Thomas Jason Fortenberry, 30, is charged with two counts of improper photography, accused of choosing two 15-year-olds and two 17-year-olds for a church game similar to the television show “Fear Factor” which ended with the girls being covered in honey. According to court documents, Fortenberry recently admitted to the two older girls that he hid a camera on Nov. 4, 2007, at the Greater Harvest Community Church at 2121 Genoa Red Bluff in Pasadena. He said he taped them disrobing and washing the honey off. Fortenberry also told one of the girls he videotaped the younger girls that day, according to the criminal complaint. When confronted by investigators, Fortenberry would only say that “he had done things he should not have done,” court records show. Fortenberry faces a maximum of two years behind bars if convicted of the state jail felonies. He could not be reached immediately for comment.
