A 61-year-old Minnesota pastor accused of raping a pair of young girls for years was charged last week, and now a warrant is out for his arrest. Jacoby Kindred of the One Accord Ministries allegedly told the girls, now teenagers, that the “devil was inside them” and claimed to remove the demons via sexual assault.
Kindred’s predicament began back in July when the mother of the accusers, both 14 and 16 now, discovered a letter from the younger girl that detailed the acts between she and Kindred. In a separate hospital visit, the older girl told a nurse that Kindred assaulted her on several occasions. Kindred, via a phone call with the Pioneer Press paper, denied all charges in a clumsy fashion.
From the Pioneer Press:
“These are not really kids,” Kindred said when reached by phone Thursday. “They have the mind of the adult.”
He accused them of making up “lies” because their mother was angry with him.
“I never did anything like that,” he said, referring to the allegations. “Anyone can make up anything when you sit there long enough and you rehearse it.
“All a woman has to do (in Minnesota) is make an accusation, true or false, and the man’s going to be in trouble,” Kindred said.
Known as “Jacoby Preacherman” on his Facebook page, Kindred is the father of the mother’s ex-boyfriend. The pastor claims the mother’s new boyfriend has it out for him, thus sparking the charges. The criminal complaint was filed last Wednesday and a warrant is out for Kindred’s arrest.
Kindred faces a potential 30 years for each count.
