Winnipeg pastor found guilty of arranging to meet minor for sex in California A California jury has found a former Winnipeg pastor guilty of arranging to meet a minor for lewd purposes, after he planned a meeting with an undercover officer posing online as a 15-year-old girl in August. Nathan George Rieger was convicted Friday in San Luis Obispo County, northwest of Santa Barbara, according to a news release from the area's district attorney's office. The conviction came after a week-long trial and a half-day of jury deliberation, the release said. He faces up to four years in state prison for the conviction. Rieger had pleaded not guilty after he was arrested on Aug.

The plane was taxied to the de-icing station after the onboard medical situation was sorted out.

The flight departed Winnipeg en route to San Diego at 7:47 p.m., making the delay almost three hours.
