Gloriavale’s shame: Second senior member convicted of child sex offending, loses suppression bid
By: Kurt Bayer – 19/12/2019
A Gloriavale teacher who sexually assaulted a schoolgirl seven years ago can finally be named today after a long legal battle.
Just Standfast, 68, touched and forcibly kissed a 9-year-old girl in 2012.
The girl was scared and when she tried to run away, she noticed he had exposed himself, the Greymouth District Court heard when he was sentenced in March this year.
Standfast is the second senior Gloriavale member to be convicted of sexual offending against children this year.
