One way or another, there’s definitely evil afoot.
Sheriff’s deputies in Florida have charged a Pasco County preacher with two counts of sexual battery after a 17-year-old girl told them he had sex with her after telling her she had “multiple personalities.”
Personalities - Demon - Tampa - Tribune
And that one of those personalities was “possessed by demon,” the Tampa Tribune reported.
The Rev. Gerardo Martinez, pastor of Miracle Christian Church in New Port Richey, was free on $100,000 bail Wednesday after his arrest last week in connection with the charges, the Tribune reported.
Abuse - Girl - Parents - Church - April
The abuse allegedly began after the girl’s parents brought her to the church in April 2017. The incidents occurred in Martinez’s vehicle, at the church and the girl’s home in Tarpon Springs, the Tribune reported.
According to WTVT, Fox 13, at least one incident even occurred in a Publix grocery store parking lot.

They allegedly continued into October. The girl reported the incidents in December.
The 52-year-old Martinez, who is married with three children, according to the church’s website, has denied the charges.

But according to the Pasco sheriff’s office, the girl’s account was convincing.
Is sexual assault a more common crime than it used to be?
