A Texas pastor was arrested for indecent assault according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s office.
44-year-old Gregorio Maldonado, the pastor of Casa de MAAM, was arrested on a $10,000 bond after an unidentified victim came forward with allegations that Maldonado had been assaulting her since 2020.
“The investigation is ongoing as other victims have come forward with similar allegations,” said the sheriff’s office according to 25 ABC News.
Maldonado was arrested for “indecent assault” and the charge carries the possibility of up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $4,000. He was taken to Fort Bend County jail, where he will remain as the investigation unfolds.
There is still little information about what “indecent assault” means, but the police have tried to keep the investigation close as they gather the evidence for the upcoming trial. More victims have come forward after the first one accused Maldonado.
Police forces also encouraged anyone who may have been a victim of pastor Maldonado to reach out with information to the FBCSO Special Crimes Unit at 281-341-4686.
