MEDIA, Pa. - A former assistant pastor of a southeastern Pennsylvania church faces sentencing on charges that he sexually assaulted young girls nearly three decades ago...
...Authorities say Klever raped and sexually assaulted girls in his youth group while an assistant pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Springfield between 1977 and 1983. One woman says he raped her one time at a pool party and another time after tying her to a bed at a church retreat.
Klever is 76. It is a little late for justice. I hope his victims have managed to move on. I doubt it. This is the kind of thing that sticks around for years and years.
It looks like Klever was a serial rapist. At least 12 women came forward with allegations of sexual abuse when the case fist hit the press.
Police in Springfield say 12 women have contacted First Presbyterian Church in Springfield, where Klever was assistant pastor between 1977 and 1983, to report sexual misconduct by Klever. The current charges, however, apply to two women who were 16 and 17 when the incidents occurred, said Kovach, explaining that due to the statute of limitations, Klever cannot be prosecuted for misconduct alleged to have occurred before July 12, 1980.
It is a shame I missed this one. Klever appears to one of the worst Pedophile pastors to come to justice in a few years.
