Former Pastor Sentenced 23 Jan 12

A former pastor from rural Gibbon found guilty of criminal sexual conduct was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 15 years of supervised probation on Friday in Sibley County Court.

52-year-old David Edwin Radtke, who now lives in Shawnee, Kansas, was convicted of 3rd-degree criminal sexual conduct for inappropriately touching a 16-year-old Spanish foreign exchange student.

The incidents occurred during late-night massages while the student was staying in his home last May.

It took a jury about 4 hours to find Radtke guilty this past October.

In court Friday, Radtke was also ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and to register as a predatory offender. He may not have any contact with persons under 18 years of age while on probation, and is also prohibited from possessing pornographic material. He was fined a thousand dollars as well, and restitution will be determined within 30 days.
