RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — New details are coming to light in the case prosecutors plan to present against former ROC pastor Geronimo “Pastor G” Aguilar. Aguilar faces 8 felony counts of sexual assault on two young girls in Texas when he was their youth pastor in the 1990s.

Ahead of Aguilar’s upcoming trial in Fort Worth next month, more accusations of sex with parishioners, abortions and sexually transmitted diseases have suddenly been revealed.

8News has learned the state of Texas is trying to introduce information about other alleged crimes and alleged wrong-doing in the trial against the former mega church pastor.

Aguilar’s attorney in Texas has filed a motion to exclude this newly-revealed information from the trial. She argues that unless the state can prove it, it’s not admissible.

The court documents note “extraneous offenses and other crimes” the state of Texas wants to introduce as evidence in Aguilar’s June trial.

According to the court documents, Aguilar is accused of another sexual assault on a child, which resulted in the girl becoming pregnant at age 15.

You may remember several women spoke out to 8News exclusively, accusing Aguilar of sexual misconduct and affairs with church members. The court documents name additional sexual relationships with parishioners.

In one case, it’s alleged he paid for a parishioner to have an abortion and be moved to Michigan. The court documents also state that he allegedly passed on a sexually transmitted disease during an affairs with church members.

While serving as head of the ROC Church in 2010, newly-revealed accusations say Aguilar touched the breasts and genitals of a 16-year-old Richmond girl who was a babysitter for his children.

Also filed with the court documents: a complete list of the witnesses. The state has identified more than 120 witnesses it may call to the stand.

On Friday, there will be a pre-trial hearing to discuss whether any of these latest accusations can be presented in trial.
