TX - Pastor arrested for abuse of young girl; SNAP responds

For immediate release: August 19, 2013

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

A Houston pastor has been arrested for sexually abusing a 8-year-old girl.

We applaud the young girl’s family for reporting the abuse of Romulo Jimenez to authorities. 

We encourage the members of Centro Cristiano Vida Nuevo to report anything they may have experienced, witnessed, or suspected to police in order to ensure that this predator is kept away from children forever. 

We urge officials at the Centro Cristiano Vida Nuevo church to also reach out to potential victims at any other church or work place where Jimenez may have spent time.

It is critical to treat all crimes against children as crimes and report them. Neither the criminal nor moral code stipulates that religious leaders can sexually assault children, nor can they hush up or abet such crimes with impunity.
