Pastor to stand trial for sex with child

A pastor has been committed to stand trial for sex with a member of his congregation when she was between the ages of 5 and 8.

Delroy Fraser, 39, of Canouan is alleged to have committed the acts between 2014 and 2017.

At the conclusion of a preliminary inquiry at the Family Court on Dec. 6, Fraser was committed to stand trial at the next practicable sitting of the High Court on four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 13.

The allegation against Fraser is said to have reached authorities after the child made a report to a member of the church, who told her mother.

The mother reported the allegation to the church committee, which summoned the police.

Fraser, an irrigation technician, said to be the second from the top in his congregation, has been described alternately as a pastor and a lay minister.

He was granted EC$8,000 bail when he was first arraigned and has been ordered to have no contact with the child.

The man is also to report to police every Friday until the matter is disposed of.

  1. He is not from Canouan

  2. Is it just my imagination or are more men now being charged with these heinous crimes?

    My belief is that such crimes have not increased in recent years but rather they are being reported, prosecuted, and leading to convictions in larger numbers than before.

    If this is so, all right minded persons should be applauding.

    • Great observation, and probably the best explanation.

    • You already have him found guilty. Let’s have the trial first. I am sure that you would want it that way if you were accused. If he actually did this, there may be other children he molested. That is usually the case. We are not the USA. As much as I think Donald Trump has some disgusting things about his personality, it turns out that the sex charges against him have all been false and many have already been exposed as being set-up by his political opponents. It is so sad that we are brain-washed by false information. Just because someone is accused does not make them guilty. Donald Trump has also been accused of being racist, but he has allocated over 500 times more funding to black communities and education than Obama did in all his 8 years. Trump also has tablesd legislation of 100 Billion Dollars for improving black communities in the USA. Why don’t people look at his bias to Israel and apparent hatred of Islam? With this pastor, why don’t we at least wait until the evidence has been presented before we have him prosecuted.

      • You sure got some big balls [a lot of courage] defending Donald Trump(the Nationalist) here. When we think that Trump can’t get any worse, he does it again. Good luck with that.

      • Wow! Is this Kanye? Yo put down the crack pipe.

        Yo, Trump himself said he grabbed females by the pu$$y; he slept with porn stars and try to cover it up. And yet you are saying, he is being set up by his “political opponents”…Who is brain washed?

        Stop with the FAKE NEWS. The only thing Trump has done for the black community is to insult our intelligence.

        Obama did 8 years…Let’s see if Trump can make 4.

        Pastor Paedo must be shi##ing his pants, given the the sort of sentences handed down for similiar crimes by Mr Cottle.

  3. Pastor if you found guilty a nice 40 years go do you good. Bug nyam yo supper in they.

  4. The good Lord is telling his chosen ones that things are going down, and only the wise people would understand his work and doings. Human being thinking about themself and not about others who really need help especially the poor people. You don’t know who to trust especially those who preaching God words,and some of them are doing the devil work. In my opinion that pastor should be lock up for a long time. Please keep Grenada safe, because allover the world people are going nuts. Only God could help us on this earth, thats why strange things are happening. Wake up call from the Lord! To all the people in Grenada Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year from above and have a good one!

  5. That [alleged’ pedophile is not a man of God. I couldn’t imagine that a God-fearing man would sexually abuse a five-year-old. This should warrant a very high punishment, say 39 years. The [alleged] paedophile should be institutionalized at the courts’ discretion. He should be also be made to pay for the therapy for the child’s rehabilitation. I hope that he does not fall into the hands of the men in this child’s family before that. Still, people have long memories so he will get what is coming to him.
    What is happening to our people? It is as if many are turning their backs on the moral lessons they learned from the Bible?
    These matters are a mockery of everything we hold dear.
