Pastor Geronimo Aguilar, the disgraced founder of the Richmond Outreach Center (ROC), has been indicted by a Texas grand jury. He's charged with sexually assaulting a child. He faces life in prison.
If convicted on the two aggravated sexual assault charges, which are first-degree felonies, Aguilar, who once led raucous church services packed with throngs of loyal followers, could spend the rest of his life in a Texas prison.
The indecency charges are second-degree felonies that carry a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars. Aguilar and his attorney did not respond to a request for comment Friday evening.
My heart soars at the thought of pastor Geronimo Aguilar rotting in a Texas prison for the rest of his life. The man is the ultimate hypocrite. His former church, the ROC, just announced that Aguilar was biblically disqualified from being a pastor because of numerous affairs in the church and in community. There is no word yet as to if he is disqualified for the alleged rape of children.
