Houston Univision reports that former pastor Romulo Jiminez del Centro Cristiano Vida Nueva iglesia was sentenced after a  continuous spiral of sexually assaulting an 8 year old girl in his church. The mother of child  could not imagine that same man who blessed her marriage would  abuse her child of only 8 years old of age. Jiminez Rumulo abused the child from  August 2012 through February 2013. The mother Vanessa takes refuge as she quotes Psalms 140.   Pastor Jiminez has been sentenced to  10 years, and he must serve at least half of the sentence.  The suspect’s lawyer stated that the pastor had no pass with the law. There are concerns of more victims coming forth as well.

(Houston chronicles)-The girl told investigators Jimenez took her into his office at the church, laid her on the desk, rubbed her legs, lowered her pants and underwear and kissed her, according to court records.

On another occasion, she told investigators, Jimenez made her sit on his lap in his parked car in the church parking lot while he kissed her.

The girl told her parents that she had been assaulted after a witness saw Jimenez coming out of a church bathroom late one night. Inside the restroom, the criminal complaint states, the witness saw the girl with her pants and underwear down. The witness said Jimenez told her he had been helping the girl go to the bathroom. When the woman asked the girl what had happened, the girl did not respond.

The witness told the girl’s parents about what she had seen. The child later told her parents Jimenez had twice touched her inappropriately.

Jimenez’s wife told officials that when the girl’s parents confronted Jimenez about their daughter’s accusations, he did not deny the allegations and confessed his mistake, according to the complaint.
State District Judge Vanessa Velasquez sentenced Jimenez after a pre-sentence investigation. He pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault.

Romulo Jiminez was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
