If ever there was an argument for lifelong imprisonment, Pastor Steven Wintersteen is the poster boy. He was convicted earlier this week on charges that he traveled across state lines to engage in sex with an 8-year-old girl and possession of child pornography. At 61, his potential 30 year sentence is a death sentence. Good riddance.
According to the FBI, Wintersteen told the witness that he had sexual relations with his “daughter when 13,” and “Asians very young.”
FBI agents were waiting for Wintersteen when he stepped off the plane in Oklahoma City. During an FBI interview, agents report that Wintersteen described his journey as an “adventure,” to find out whether the woman or child were, “real.” The woman was an FBI informant, the eight year old was made up.
