|Pastor Dawid Volmer|
A PERTH evangelical Christian pastor who led a “sexual double life” has been jailed for 10 and a half years for the horrific and degrading abuse of a 13-year-old girl.
The District Court was told Volmer placed an ad on website Craigslist offering sexual massages which the victim’s father responded to in January 2014.
Volmer met the victim and her father at a park in Joondalup and despite the father’s repeated insistence that his daughter was over 16, Volmer “knew in his heart” she was well underage.
However he proceeded to molest her and have sex with her on three separate occasions at a city hotel and at the father’s home in Perth’s northern suburbs.
Prosecutor Robert Wilson said on those occasions Volmer made his young victim inhale amyl nitrite vapour, a substance used to enhance sexual pleasure and feelings which he purchased at a sex shop.
The girl told police the substance made her feel woozy and light-headed for a short time.
