Cult leader a child sex offender

A self-proclaimed prophet known as Little Pebble has been found guilty of sex offences against a girl more than 10 years ago.

A New South Wales District Court today found William Kamm, 56, guilty of five counts of sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16 under his authority and one count of committing an act of indecency.

The girl was aged 14 and 15 at the time and was part of a religious community Kamm established at Cambewarra, near Nowra, on the NSW south coast.

Kamm created the community, the Order of Saint Charbel, in the late 1980s.

Judge Peter Berman will hear sentencing submissions on August 3.
