A woman who went for counselling at a pastor’s house has received the opposite of what she bargained after the pastor took advantage of her in his house and raped her. Trent Online reports:
The married pastor identified as Nathaniel Small, Jr., of of Greater Friendship Baptist Church, Georgia was however arrested after the woman, Kadijah Davis filed a suit against him in Chatham County State Court. It was gathered that the victim who was not a member of Small’s church became endeared to him when he came over to their house and gave her words of encouragement following her dad’s death two years ago.
According to All Christian News, the location of the counseling service was per the request of Small’s wife, Barbara Small who was not home when the alleged abuse took place in February 2013. In her lawsuit filed against the pastor, through her attorney, Thomas Hunter of Savannah, the victim said that the church had failed to stop Small from misusing “access gained through his pastoral position to sexually prey upon girls and women.”
She pasadded, “Church members and leaders were aware of defendant Nathaniel Small, Jr.’s predatory sexual misconduct and abuse of his pastoral position, or rumors or allegations thereof, but took no steps to prevent his further sexual misconduct with those with which he came into contact through his church position.”
She further demanded a compensation for the assault, negligence and infliction of emotional distress which the assault has caused her.
