pastor

A pastor in Westminster, CO was arrested this week for the alleged sexual abuse of a minor who attended his church.

Gerald Clark, 51, is accused of sexually assaulting the girl up to 50 times over the course of several years. The alleged assault is said to have begun in 2009 when the victim lived with Clark and his wife over the summer. The victim, now 17, informed police that Clark abused her at his home, in his car, on church trips and at the church itself.

The victim says she finally put an end to the abuse when she confronted Clark out of fear that other members of her Jericho Ministries International youth group were in danger. Clark, who is out on a $20,000 bond, is due in court next week.
