Hales Corners — Thomas Chantry, a pastor at Christ Reformed Church in Hales Corners [Wisconsin] charged with child molestation linked to a church in [Prescott] Arizona, was arrested there following a Dec. 20 court hearing.
Chantry is currently behind held without bail related to child molestation charges. He is scheduled to be tried by a jury in Arizona on March 27.
Although he was arrested in Wisconsin July 25, Chantry was released Aug. 10 after posting a $100,000 cash bail.
The stipulations regarding the pastor’s release were to be determined at a Nov. 26 hearing in Arizona, but the judge assigned to the case had to recuse herself, forcing the hearing to move to a later date [Dec 20] with a different judge. Visiting Judge Bradley Astrowsky is now assigned to the case.
