PASTOR TRIAL: Edouard Continues Testimony
Patrick Edouard is back on the stand Tuesday to defend himself against eight counts of sexual abuse and exploitation.
The 42-year-old former pastor at Covenant Reformed Church in Pella testified that he was stunned when three women in his church accused him of rape. Edouard said he never performed a sex act against the will of any of the women.
He also denies providing any mental health services to his four accusers.
Prosecutors argue Edouard abused his role in the church to get close to the women then forced them into sex.
