A Phoenix pastor is jail and accused of molesting girls, including two that went to his church, and impregnating a girl who may have been as young as 13 years old.
Jose Vicente Morales was arrested on Friday, Sept. 9 near 43rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road.
According to court documents, there are at least five victims that he knew through his church or already knew outside of the church.
Police said Morales impregnated a girl when she was 13 or 14 years old. He reportedly met her when she was 8 years old and got "married" when she was 10 years old, court documents said.
Another victim said she was sexually abused from when she was 7 years old to when she was 12 years old. She recalled being molested by Morales when she was sleeping over at his house and then another time while she was swimming in his pool, court documents said.
An 18-year-old victim said Morales lured her to his house and touched her inappropriately. Court documents said in another incident, Morales went to the victim's house and sexually assaulted her.
The investigation started when a 17-year-old girl told her mother she was hurting herself because of the sexual abuse by Morales five years earlier, court documents said.
Another victim said she was 10 or 11 years old when she was abused.
After Morales was arrested, court documents said he admitted to a sexual relationship with the 18-year-old but denied everything else. He claims the girl he married was 15 years old, not 10.
The investigation is ongoing.
He is facing one count of molestation of a child and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.
