Pastor Pleads Guilty To Molesting 11 Year-Old Girl

Minnesota: A retired pastor and former volunteer chaplain for the St. Cloud Police Department pleaded guilty Thursday to charges that he repeatedly sexually abused a girl at his west St. Cloud home.

Arthur James Ree, 83, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Prosecutors plan to ask Stearns County District Court Judge Kris Davick-Halfen to sentence Ree to 28 years in prison, while Ree’s attorney said he plans to file paperwork seeking a sentence far shorter.
