HOUSTON, TX – Romulo Jimenez, the pastor of Centro Christiano Vida Nueva in southwest Houston, stood before a different judge than he’s used to preaching about.

Jimenez is charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child after allegations surfaced that he molested a then-8-year old girl last fall. He was reportedly the girl’s pastor.

“In court, probable cause was read from the judge and then his bond was set at $50,000,” said prosecutor Angela Smith. “The judge also ordered him not to have any contact with any children, including the complainant in this case, but also including his own grandchildren.”

As bad as the charges are, some fear it could be worse.

“There is concern that there are more victims out there, and if there are, we do urge them to please contact law enforcement,” said Smith.

No doubt there are lots of parishioners praying for justice.
