Pastor G posts bond, released from Texas jail

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Geronimo "Pastor G" Aguilar of the Richmond Outreach Center is out of a Texas jail after posting $200,000 bond, according to Tarrant County District Attorney's office.

A bond hearing set for Friday at his attorney's request has been canceled. Prosecutors have six months, under Texas law, to present the case to a Grand Jury.

Prosecutors in Texas charged Aguilar with seven felony counts in two child sex abuse cases dating back to 1996. Four of the counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child under 14, are first degree felonies that could carry life in prison.

Texas authorities took over custody of Aguilar from the Richmond Sheriff's Office Friday morning. Aguilar temporarily stepped down from his positions as President of the Board and Pastor at the Richmond Outreach Center last week due to the charges.

Aguilar's attorney says his client is innocent. He wouldn't divulge Aguilar's travel plans.
