It's only 10 sex-related felonies

Only 10 so far! There will be many more to come.

John Picard, 40, of Springboro, has been charged with 10 counts of sexual battery, all third-degree felonies. He is accused of having sexual relations with a girl starting in 1992 when she was 13 and continuing until she reached adulthood. Picard was a youth pastor at Grace Brethren Church on Marion Avenue at the time

Now seriously, would you let this man anywhere near your teenaged daughter?


It sounds like John Picard is a real peach. He must of been a pastor for some satanic church, right? No. Try Grace Brethren Church in beautiful Mansfield, Ohio.

"That's preliminary charges until we sift through other information," Shook said. "We know of several victims. Their identities will be as protected as we can protect them."

Vandayburg said Picard might have a hold on some of the reported victims.

"He still keeps up with some of these girls as adults. They're still followers," the lieutenant said. "That's how much he's brainwashed them."

This case will be interesting.
