Former Minister Convicted For Sexually Assaulting Children Is Back In Court

A former Lutheran minister sentenced to nearly 400 years in prison for committing sex crimes against children now faces civil litigiation.

Gerald Thomas was arrested in 2001 and was found guilty last year for sexually assaulting several teenage boys at the church where he was a minister in Marshall. Now the victims have filed a civil lawsuit against Thomas, the national Lutheran church and the seminary where he attended school to become a minister.

Today a district judge heard pre-trial motions. The trial is set to begin April 5th.
