VA--Predator former Mega Church Pastor is sentenced

For immediate release: Monday, October 12, 2015

Statement by Becky Ianni of Burke, Virginia Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (703-801-6044, [email protected]) 

A former Richmond mega church pastor was sentenced to 40 years for molesting two girls in Texas.

He faced 7 felony charges for sex crimes against two young sisters.

Celebration Church and Outreach Ministry, formerly Richmond Outreach Center, officials should aggressively seek out others who may have seen, suspected or suffered Geronimo Aguilar crimes.  

 We are thankful that the judge gave this dangerous predator a tough sentence. Children in Virginia are safer with Aguilar in jail.

We applaud the courage of these two victims and their family.  We hope that this conviction and sentencing will bring them closure and healing. We also hope this ruling encourages others to come forward and report to police.
