Pastor Humberto Cruz convicted

My first email of this fine clear Monday contained a description of one Humberto Cruz, a former pastor and now convicted pedophile. He molested three young boys.

All three boys testified against Cruz during the trial, which began on Tuesday. One of them said he was sodomized by Cruz as many as 150 times between 2005 and 2006. Most of the crimes occurred at Cruz's home, but the jury also heard testimony about crimes that occurred in the church.

Cruz was the former pastor of the Newburgh Church of God in Orange County, New York. He faces up to 25 years in prison.
