1 min read

A Morgan Hill church pastor is facing child molestation allegations as more of his victims are sought by the authorities.

65-year-old Carlos Ramos Castrejon of Hollister was arrested last October 26 after he was subjected to a probe on sexual assault, KPIX5 reported.

Castrejon serves as a church pastor at Ministerios Generacion Josue at 16705 Butterfield Boulevard.

According to investigators, the pastor allegedly “had inappropriate physical contact with multiple children.”

The police said he was arrested and charged with 13 counts of lewd and lascivious acts with minors aged below 12; and a couple of counts of committing a lewd act of using force on his underage victim.

Castrejon was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail, and detainment records said that as of Monday, he is being jailed without bail at the Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas.

The church pastor is set to appear in court on November 18.

Additional victims are yet to reveal themselves, as detectives believe.
