A former Baptist minister has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for sexual offences against a teenaged girl from his congregation in New Brunswick.

A jury convicted Frederick Douglas Hanson, 61, of one count of sexual exploitation and one count of sexual interference at a trial last month in Woodstock.

He was aquitted on another count of each.

At the time of the offences, Hanson was the minister at the Free Will Baptist Church in Plaster Rock, about 100 kilometres southeast of Edmundston. He resigned from the position in February 2008 after the RCMP investigation was made public.

Hanson also addressed the court. He said he respects the decision, but did not admit guilt or apologize to the victim.

Hanson was given two months credit for time served and will be listed in the registry of sex offenders for 20 years.

Hanson is currently serving a six-month sentence in St. Hilaire, N.B. on an unrelated sex charge.

Will they run consecutive ? I don't think so as it states above that he was already " given two months credit for time served "

It seems that he was given that two months credit while he was serving that six month sentence.

Hopefully there will be more info in the Daily Gleaner tomorrow which we will update here or with a new article .

A former St. John River Valley pastor convicted of two sex crimes was sentenced to 16 months behind bars Friday.

Frederick Douglas Hanson, 61, appeared in the Court of Queen's Bench for a sentencing hearing on one count each of sexual exploitation and sexual interference.

Crown prosecutor Pierre Roussel and defence counsel Robert Digdon made a joint submission on sentence, suggesting 18 months minus two months for time spent in pre-sentencing custody.

Justice Terrence Morrison accepted the submission and sentenced Hanson to 16 months in a provincial jail on each count, to be served concurrently.

Sex offenders are humans too! We should give them at LEAST 4-5 chances!

Just wanted to invite you all out to Pathway Church on Miracle Drive in Lakeville. My church has dwindled from about 200 members to 13 or so and most are seniors on their way out so it'd be nice if some of you young people could come out and help me get the church back together again! Tithing is required but ONLY if you're a member so don't run away just yet! We're Pentecostl in name but DO NOT WORRY! We're not rolling on the floor or anything crazy! To be honest we just kinda have dinners and stuff once a month and I get to preach my heart out each Sunday morning but other than that we're pretty normal. Join us!

He probably violated his daughter all those years too. I knew she seemed like a nut job eating fastfood 24/7 to mask the pain of having sucked her daddy's pecker.
