Clergyman admits to sexual assault

(Continued)

After the incidents, both victims told their employer about Clements’ conduct, prompting Clements to be transferred to another facility. In both cases, he tried calling and emailing the victims in order to apologize. Eventually, the apologies turned into threats of legal action should they continue to defame his name, the report stated. Soon after, the victims approached police who quickly began an investigation in Clements actions, according to Wile’s report.

He was formally charged on Jan. 3, 2012.
