I first posted on youth pastor John Picard back in July of 2008. At the 10 there were 10 sex related felonies pending against him. As he goes to trail, there are now 42 counts of sexual battery pending against him. He faces a possible sentence of 210 years. His trial starts Monday.
I’ve corresponded with several people involved in the case. If even a small portion of the story I’ve been told makes the press, Picard will go down as one of the worst serial offenders in recent memory.
