“He used this information to influence a juvenile into believing that the word of God said that she needed to be cleansed from being molested as a child,” a court affidavit states.

Guerrero arranged to meet the juvenile alone in the office of the church, according to the court document file in Hamilton County.

“Once there, he used Bible scriptures and prayers to cleanse her as she performed oral sex on him,” according to the affidavit. Guerrero is accused of vaginally penetrating the teen, saying that “God was telling him it was necessary.”
