Ex-Montreal pastor gets five years in prison for sex with 10-year-old girl

The Canadian Press - January 26, 2009

MONTREAL — A Montreal man who described himself as a pastor has been sentenced to five years in prison for sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl he claims was his wife.

Daniel Cormier, 57, received the sentence today after a judge convicted him last October. The leader of the now-defunct Church of Downtown Montreal claimed the pair were married during a 1999 ceremony at his obscure evangelical church.

The girl, now 19, testified she was too young to grasp the concept of marriage but said she remembered the sexual abuse in vivid detail.

Cormier is also facing a pair of sex-related charges against a different 16-year-old girl.
