Hat tip to my friend Imogen.
I missed this one! It happened in my own back yard and it had drama and everything! It seems that William Malgren collapsed when told he would spend six years in State Prison. I sure visions of violent ass rapes danced in his head. I have no sympathy. He molested a 7 year old girl over a 7 year period, damaging her young life in innumerable ways. I think a little rehabilitation is justified.
Malgren was pastor of the Grace Baptist Church in Moscow, Idaho. the Sheriff's arrest report indicates they are concerned that Malgren may have molested other girls and are asking for people to come forward if they have information. None have come forward so far.
Grace Baptist Church changed its name to New Hope Baptist Church. The key word is Baptist. I called 208-466-0312 for a comment from the current pastor, they would not take my call. What do you say New Hope? How do you feel about having a pedophile pastor as your spiritual leader for four years? More importantly - how do your daughters feel?
