Former youth pastor jailed for sexual assault of intellectually impaired woman

A Former youth pastor who sexually assaulted an intellectually impaired woman he met at church has been sentenced to three years in jail.
The defendant, 41, took the middle-aged woman to lunch at KFC before he took her back to his house and showed her pornography on a laptop computer, the District Court in Brisbane has been told.
He then kissed her, helped her undress and took her to his bed before he rubbed his penis over her genital area while simulating intercourse. He also touched the woman's breasts.
Crown prosecutor David Nardone said the defendant used a "degree of manipulation" over the woman and told her "it would help her to forget about her father's death". He later told her to not tell anyone.
The court was told the woman's IQ fell within extremely low range of intelligence and 99.7 per cent of her peers performed better.
She had issues with communication, socialising, independent functioning and vocational skills and lived with her elderly mother.
She had met the defendant about 20 years earlier and saw the father-of-four as a family friend.
After she told police what happened, four to six weeks later in June last year, he denied sexual contact and told police he had not seen the woman for months.
A psychiatrist said the woman suffered nightmares, was scared most days and remained fearful the defendant "would come and get her".
Mr Nardone described aspects of the sexual offence as "particularly degrading".
He said the breach of trust was significant after the pastor had made an association with the woman through the church.
Defence barrister Jakub Lodziak said his client had not pre-planned the sexual offending.
He said his client was a "giving and law-abiding member of society and family man" and committed the crime after the breakdown of his marriage.
It had been a "dark time" and the defendant described his offending as "the biggest mistake of his life".
He was most recently employed as a safety adviser.
Judge Leanne Clare SC said the defendant had acted as a predator against his victim whose impairments were "substantial and obvious".
"You were a trusted figure from the church from the past and someone who she knew as a friend,"she said.
"You exploited her vulnerability and manipulated her trust at a time she was still grieving for her father.
"She had grown up in a close protected family - you destroyed her innocence and you robbed her of much of the enjoyment of her life."
The defendant will spend nine months in jail of his three-year sentence, before it is suspended.
As he was walked out of court by guards, a family member of the victim said: "Rot in hell."
A spokesman for the church said the defendant had not been employed by, or attended, the church for over two years and was not an employee when the offences occurred.
"We were shocked to hear these allegations and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim," the church said.
