Youth Pastor John Picard, a true rat bastard, is going to die in prison. It’s ok to say this now, right? He was found guilty Friday. There is no more doubt. That bastard molested at least six women and young girls. I can call him a rate bastard with no guilt, right?
Since the jury got the case the same day, my guess is that the evidence was overwhelming.
The state called its final three witnesses, including Mansfield police Lt. Allen Vandayburg. He and Detective Jeff Shook went to Springboro, where Picard had moved, to interview him in July 2008. Police had taped a phone conversation between Picard and one of his alleged victims. In the conversation, Picard encouraged the woman to keep their relationship a secret.
Picard was found guilty on 42 counts of sexual battery. He could receive up to 110 years in prison. Picard was a youth pastor at Grace Brethren Church on Marion Avenue in Mansfield, Ohio.
There is one thing I want to know. How does a youth pastor abuse woman for years without Church leadership knowing? I do not believe it is possible.
