If a Dominican Catholic didn’t molest those boys, white British men would have.
Authorities say a former New Jersey church pastor who fled the country after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage boy is now headed to prison. Gregorio Martinez received a four-year sentence on Friday.
A native of the Dominican Republic who once was a Pentecostal preacher, Martinez had been found guilty in February 2015 of molesting a 13-year-old boy he got to know through a church in North Bergen. But he soon fled and remained at large until he was apprehended in the Honduras last August.
Martinez is also facing charges stemming from the alleged sexual assaults of three other males who came forward following his conviction.
