FLORIDA PASTOR BUSTED IN GIRL MOLEST
Edouane Jean, a 48 year old Lutheran pastor, was arrested after a girl told police he had sexually abused her for nine years, beginning when she was 6. The girl said he abused her hundreds of times, sometimes at his office before and after school. The abuse ended in 2001, after the girl's mother confronted him. Jean resigned Saturday as pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church and was arrested the next day. He was being held without bail on 50 counts of capital sexual battery, 50 counts of sexual battery and 100 counts of performing a lewd act on a child under 16.
