Pastor Gets 4 Years For Sex With Girl

Wales: A married minister was jailed for four years yesterday for having sex in his church with a 15-year-old girl.

Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court heard how Pastor Ceri John Rees, 30, quoted from the Bible to seduce the teenager, telling her “it was perfectly normal to have a union of the flesh on a physical level”. But the married father-of-three omitted a passage which referred the “union” to be between man and wife.

The crime came to light on December 27, 2009, when Rees confessed to the nine-month affair.

Rees had pleaded guilty to 14 counts including five of sexual activity with a child and seven of taking or making indecent images. His wife has filed for divorce.
