Pastor Ronald Burning arrested

Canadian Pastor Ronald Burning was arrested while trying to cross into the United States at the Sarnia border crossing.  Burning is a Baptist pastor. He stands accused of abusing a 14-year-old girl.

Ontario Provincial Police had issued an arrest warrant earlier in the day for Ronald Burning, pastor of the Johnsfield Baptist Church in Ohsweken, near Brantford.

Acting Sergeant Aaron McPhail said Burning faces eight charges involving three victims, some of which date from the 1970s and others more recently. They include two counts of sexual assault, anal intercourse, sexual exploitation of a child, rape, intercourse with a female under 14, indecent act on a female and forcible confinement.

Why would he run to the United States? We put pedophiles away for much longer than Canada.
