RICHMOND (WRIC)—Geronimo Scott “Pastor
G” Aguilar, the ex-founder and former head pastor of the Richmond Outreach
Center, commonly known as the ROC, was indicted in a second sexual assault case
ABC 8 News Anchor Kerri O’Brien broke
this story last year, and has been following it closely ever since.
Aguilar, 43, was arrested in May
2013 and charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl and her
13-year-old sister while he was their youth pastor in Fort Worth, Texas in 1996
and 1997. In September, a grand jury indicted him on two counts of aggravated
sexual assault in the case involving the younger sister. Wednesday’s indictment
pertains to the case involving the then-13-year-old sister, who spoke to ABC 8
News exclusively more than nine months ago.
“I was 13 and it started out the
same way, where he was very flirtatious and then it progressed … within a month’s
time where we started having sexual intercourse,” she said.
Her younger sister said, “I was
about 11 when I had my first encounter with Geronimo that was inappropriate.”
On Jan. 15, Aguilar was indicted by a
grand jury in Tarrant County, Texas on eight counts: two counts of aggravated
sexual assault of a child under 14, three counts of sexual assault of a child
under 17 and three counts of indecency with a child. The first two counts are
first-degree felonies that carry a maximum punishment of life in prison. The
latter six are second-degree felonies punishable by a maximum of 20 years in
The ROC continued
to grant Pastor G severance pay and allowed him to live in its parsonage
through December 2013.
Aguilar is free on bond. No trial
date has been set.
Aguilar’s attorney, David Carlson, who
was charged with domestic assault last fall, says Pastor G is innocent.
