Pastor Jose Campos Jailed for Allegedly Sexually Touching 11-Year-Old

Jose Campos, a local pastor more comfortable behind the pulpit, finds himself behind bars this morning. Campos stands accused of sexual battery of a minor after an 11-year-old girl told a teacher about the abuse. Campos has admitted as much to police, but says that the touching happened by accident. Update: The victims has now been identified as male. 

Campos, 60, is the pastor at Ministerio Nueva Vida En Cristo Jesus Church at 124 NW 15th Avenue, according to NBC Miami.

The incident allegedly occurred in April, and the boy says he fell asleep in the pastor's car, and when he awoke she found his hands inside of his underwear. Campos told police that his hands wound up in the boy's underwear by accident.

Campos stands accused of sexual battery on a minor, and is being held without bond.
