Pastor Campoverde convicted

Jose Campoverde1Pastor Jose Rama Campoverde, a pastor from a church just down the road in Anaheim, was convicted of molesting four young girls after pleading guilty. He was sentenced to prison for 6 years.

Campoverde was accused of touching the four girls, who were as young as 13, between April 2007 and September 2009, prosecutors said.

Campoverde was a pastor at Ministerio Cristo Vive, a small Anaheim congregation whose members worshiped in a few suites behind a 99 Cents Only store in a strip mall on South Euclid Street, police said last year.
