A FORMER Bristol magistrate and church pastor has been charged with sexually abusing a teenage boy.

James Hennah is accused of three counts of illegal sexual touching between 2007 and 2010.
The 39-year-old, who was a prominent member of the Bristol Community Church in Kingswood, is also charged with watching his alleged victim, who was under 16, “doing a private act” without consent, for his own sexual gratification, in 2010.

He appeared at Exeter Magistrates’ Court for the first time yesterday.
