Pervs in the pulpit!
Torrance police say a South Bay worship leader, Jose Mendez Vazquez, has been charged with molesting a girl who was only 4-years-old at the time. Those charges are the result of an alleged incident that took place near his Torrance home in 2008. 67-year-old Vazquez worked at a number of churches in the area that serve Spanish-speaking congregations.
The alleged victim, who is now age 8, recently revealed the incident to a friend who informed Torrance police.
Police arrested Vazquez on Dec. 3 and charged him with two counts of committing lewd acts upon a child. After pleading not guilty he was freed on bail.
According to KTLA reports, investigators believe that Vazquez might have had contact with more children at the churches he served.
This is awful. That poor little girl. We hope if there are any other victims they come forward so this creep can get the maximum sentence for his dirty deeds. What a nasty old man!
