A South African court has sentenced a former Seventh Day Adventist Church pastor to two years house imprisonment for sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl.


According to SABC News Western Cape, 52-year-old Aerial Haarder, a former leader of the SDA Church in Pacaltsdorp, was found guilty of the offence by the Thembalethu Regional Court in George, located on the southern part of the Western Cape.


Haarder, who was charged two years ago after the 10-year-old victim’s father reported the matter to authorities, has two more sexual-related cases pending against him.
