A 59-year-old assistant pastor at the Liberty Pentecostal Church, in Keighley, West Yorkshire, England, Laurence Peterson, has been jailed for more than 8 years for helping a church minister, Rev. John Wilson, tosexually assault female parishioners.

On several occasions, Peterson blocked doors and held victims down as a 70-year-old Rev John Wilson performed “grotesque” exorcisms on member of the congregation.

The offences have reportedly left the victims mentally scared.
