A California pastor has been accused of having sex with a teenage girl. Matthias Anderson, 41, had allegedly been having a sexual relationship with a girl in her mid-teens for approximately two years.
Anderson is said to be a former Marine who founded a ministry in Oceanside. The sexual relationship with the girl allegedly started when she and her mother were staying at the church’s women’s shelter. The girl’s mother allegedly knew about the relationship some time ago but could not get the girl to cooperate in an investigation.
Police are allegedly investigating the possibility of other victims in the area. Anderson was allegedly arrested at the victim’s home after the girl and her mother approached police with their claims.
