Former foster parent indicted on sexual abuse charges

MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — A Baldwin County man who served as a foster parent has been indicted on several charges related to the sexual abuse of his foster children.

Court records show Patrick Streeter was arrested on sex abuse-related charges in June and a week later more charges were filed.

The Madison County grand jury recently indicted Streeter on six sex crime charges – three counts of sodomy, two counts of foster parent engaging in a sex act with a foster child and one count of sexual torture.

This came after he was arrested in Baldwin County last June and extradited to Huntsville to be charged in connection with a 2020 incident.

Streeter bonded out shortly after his arrests last summer. However, according to court filings, the Madison County District Attorney’s office found out Streeter had been in contact with at least one of the alleged victims.

In a motion to add bond conditions, the Madison County DA’s office says all of the victims in the cases against Streeter disclosed that they were living in Streeter’s home as foster children. The filing outlines that Streeter recently spoke with one of the alleged victims and told them he was, “working on getting everything cleared up with DHR and getting his license back.”

The judge in his case ordered that Streeter not be alone with any child under 18.

Streeter is the former Vice President of Madison County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association and the former minister of families with children and youth at Weatherly Heights Baptist Church.

The Madison County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association confirmed to News 19 that Streeter worked with them from 2019 until he resigned in 2020.

Streeter is scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial hearing on May 9.
