The leader of a religious community, William Kamm, better known as Little Pebble, claimed he received messages from the Virgin Mary at 3pm on the 13th of every month.

Just before noon on the 14th of this month, yesterday, he received a judge's message that his behaviour towards a "vulnerable young girl" in his community had been "entirely inappropriate", when he was sentenced to at least 3 years in jail.

Kamm, 55, was convicted of sexually and indecently assaulting the girl, then aged 15, over a five-month period 12 years ago.

He claimed the Virgin Mary had chosen the girl to be a "Queen" in his community of followers in Cambewarra, on the South Coast.
