Pastor rapes eight-year-old girl; gets ordered to buy girl's dad 2 crates of beer as punishment

Human rights activists in Mexico have reacted with fury after a pastor accused of sexually abusing an eight-year old girl was ordered to buy the victim’s father two crates of beer as compensation.

The perpetrator, identified as a 55-year-old former pastor, was given the sanction after the victim’s parents complained to the municipal government in Santiago Quetzalapa, a remote indigenous community without road access or cellular phone coverage some 450km south-east of Mexico City.

He was only arrested after local media coverage of the fine prompted widespread outrage in the state.

In a statement to the Guardian, the Oaxaca state attorney general’s office said that police arrested a man on Friday morning on charges of aggravated rape.
