mega church pastors under investigation
Before he built a 10,000-seat church in Richmond, Va., Geronimo Scott Aguilar was a sexual predator who had sex with underage girls, including two sisters in Tarrant County for which he was convicted.
The sentencing hearing for Aguilar started Monday with witnesses elaborating on testimony they first expressed in a Tarrant County courtroom this summer.
Aguilar, 45, was convicted in June on all seven counts of his indictment, which stemmed mostly from a sexual relationship he had with one girl that started when she was 13 and he was in his 20s. He was also convicted of having sex with that girl’s younger sister, beginning when she was 11.
Aguilar was convicted of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child which each carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. He was also convicted of three counts of sexual assault of a child under 17 and two counts of indecency with a child, each second-degree felonies, each which carry maximum sentences of 20 years.
Aguilar elected to have state District Judge Louis Sturns assess his sentence.
During Monday’s testimony, a witness said the pastor was an active sexual predator. The woman, 52, said that she began having sex with Aguilar as a teen in California.
Years later, she testified that she read an email that Aguilar had sent to her 17-year-old daughter.
