Pastor sees bail reduced in molestation case
September 01, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A Daly City pastor charged with lewd acts on a young girl had his bond reduced Thursday from $300,000 to $100,000, prosecutors said.

Venije Cornelis Singkoh, 70, was also ordered to surrender his passport and will have to check in with probation two times a week if released.

Prosecutors said Singkoh was the pastor of the Indonesian Pentecostal Foursquare Church at 378 18th Ave. in San Francisco when he molested a 9-year-old girl several times over the course of a year.

Prosecutors said Singkoh had the girl sit on his lap and would kiss her inappropriately.

The victim told investigators the last incident occurred in February. Daly City police arrested Singkoh after the girl came forward to her parents.

They told other church leaders, and child protective services and police were notified.

Singkoh denied the accusations and has pleaded not guilty to three counts of lewd acts on a child.

Singkoh’s case is set for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 24.
