Pastor Clevon Ghent guilty

Clevon Ghent “Pastor” might be too strong of a term for this case. Clevon Ghent was a volunteer minister. That did not stop him from having sex with a 12-year-old girl.

Clevon Ghent, 36, met the girl while serving at Born Again Church of God and Christ.

Prosecutors say Ghent, who was also a friend of the girl's father, had sex with her last year when he was babysitting her.

The girl, now 13, testified earlier this week that she had sex with Ghent on three occasions: twice at his home and once in his Lincoln Navigator.

Wait a minute, volunteer pastor, Lincoln Navigator, what? Clevon must have another job. Perhaps it was babysitting.

Gent faces 90 years in prison. I hope his Lincoln Navigator can take 90 years of storage. Those things are status symbols. He’ll need something when he gets out (in 2100).
