A pastor from Glace Bay is facing sex charges related to three minors.

Pastor Robert Lawther, 59, of Bethel Family Church was arrested Wednesday and charged with three counts of sexual interference.

The charges involve three different children, all younger than 16, and stem from incidents that occurred over the last five years in Glace Bay.

Lawther appeared in Nova Scotia provincial court in Sydney on Wednesday and was released on a recognizance with several strict conditions. He will return to court on Aug. 22 for plea.
