(Mckoys News)- Moravian Pastor Pleads Guilty to Incest: Reverend Rupert Clarke, Moravian pastor pleaded guilty to two counts of having sex with someone under the age of 16 years old in the St Elizabeth Parish Court on Wednesday, November 28, 2017.
Clarke, who had his bail extended to March 8, 2018 when he will be sentenced, was arrested on December 28 last year by law officers in St Elizabeth after he was allegedly seen in a compromising position with a 15-year-old girl in his car along the Austin main road in the parish.
Clarke had charges of a similar nature laid against him in relation to another member of the family of the 15-year-old, after being charged with offences in relation to this incident.
This case triggered off a sex scandal at the Moravian church which catapulted into other allegations of sex with minors being brought against other pastors and officials. The other persons accused are still before the courts.
