An Ohio pastor accused of sexually assaulting a teenage parishioner who was also sexually abused as a child told authorities that he had sex with her “to fix her fears.”
Cesar Guerrero, 38, a pastor at Misión Cristiana El Calvario in Sharonville who has been charged with coercion and enticement of a minor, told investigators that he also asked his 17-year-old victim to remove her clothes because “he wanted to clear (her) head.” He also made her perform oral sex on him “in order to free her mouth,” according to federal court documents cited by the Cincinnati Enquirer.
The victim’s father, who WLWT5 said also reported the alleged crime to police, said the actions of the pastor had shaken his faith.
“Angry, frustrated, can’t believe. You don’t believe in God no more,” the father, whose identity was protected by the network, said of the alleged assault.
“He’s been using God’s Word to tell the girls to do sexual things and the girls was really thought that was coming from God,” he said.
Officials say on Aug. 7, several female church members made complaints about Guerrero and one of them was the 17-year-old.
Court documents say the pastor contacted her in July through Facebook Messenger and informed her that he dreamt she was “dressed in white, while walking in a dark place.”
