A 64 year old pastor who operates from Manchester was charged with carnal abuse and rape of a 15 year old girl late December of 2016. He was identified to be Rupert Clarke of the Nazareth Moravian Church in Maidstone.
Reports on the allegations that led to the criminal charge against the pastor were that shortly before 9:00 pm on Wednesday December 28, 2016; a police team was on patrol in the community of Austin in St Elizabeth, when they noticed a parked car.
The patrol team checked the vehicle and allegedly found the pastor and a girl, who is reported to be 15-years-old, in a compromising position inside the unit.
The two were taken to the Black River Police Station, where the pastor was charged by the police.
The clergyman remains in custody with a court date pending.
New information revealed by a former Moravian Minister has now produced a trail of email contradicting claims by the church leadership that it had no previous knowledge of allegations of misconduct against the 64-year-old pastor now before the court on a sex charge.
