SD- Bond set for ex-pastor, SNAP responds
For immediate release: Wednesday, September 24, 2014
An ex-pastor from South Dakota has been arrested and had his bond set in a child sexual abuse case. We are grateful to the victim who came forward in this case.l
Timothy Thompson was the pastor at Cornerstone Community Church in Mobridge, SD and then moved to Colorado. The alleged abuse happened on SD.
We are grateful to the brave victim and their family for alerting authorities. We urge officials at Cornerstone Community Church to immediately alert parishioners and beg anyone who saw suspects, or suffers abuse to come forward, report to police, help protect children, and start healing.
