Gregory Dow, an American missionary who ran an orphanage in the East African country of Kenya has been found guilty of sexually abusing girls in the orphanage on several occasions.
The missionary 61, admitted to having committed four unlawful sexual acts with a minor abroad. Dow admitted this during a federal court hearing in the state of Pennsylvania to having committed the crimes between the years 2013 and 2017 when he still ran the orphanage.
With the missionary haven been found guilty of the heinous crimes, he could now be up to face a jail term of 15 years and eight months at least. He is scheduled to officially begin his sentence by the 29th of September, 2020. Dow often did this by promising his victims with goods of value such as cell phones and more. He was further encouraged to persist in this act by the fact that his wife had taken the girls to have birth control devices implanted on them so he feared no outcome of pregnancy when on the act.
According to the charges levied upon the American missionary, when he began his sexual assault on the girls, two of them were merely 11 years old; one was 12 and the other 13 years old. He defiled the girls till the time he left the orphanage in 2017, leaving the orphans scarred for life, as he will often use force on the girls to let them submit to his evil desires.
The Kenyan government had initially attempted to arrest the American missionary in 2017 on account of the constant complains of his actions at the orphanage, but he succeeded to flee from Kenya back to the United States of America. However, he was finally apprehended by the FBI and the local police and took him to custody in 2019.
It was then discovered that Dow had a track record of sexual assault in the state of Iowa, US where he had been sentenced to two years probation and forced to order as a sex offender.
