Former youth pastor charged with molestation
MILLARD K. IVES
CENTER HILL -- A former youth pastor was charged with four counts of sexual battery Tuesday, on accusations he had a four-year sexual relationship with a teen-aged member of the church.
Jose Alfredo Coronado, 38, of Center Hill, was arrested at his job at the Sumter County Supervisor of Elections office. He is being held at the Sumter County jail in lieu of $120,000 bail.
Sumter County Sheriff's officials said the 18-year-old alleged victim went to the sheriff's office on Tuesday, saying he had been sexually involved with Coronado between the ages of 12 and 14.
The victim told police that the molestation began while Coronado was his youth pastor and took place mostly at Coronado's home in Center Hill.
Sheriff's officials said Coronado was associated with the Church of God of the First Born during the time of the alleged incidents.
Lt. Bobby Caruthers, sheriff's spokesman, said detectives coordinated a phone call between the victim and suspect, in which Coronado admitted sexual involvement with the victim. Detectives located Coronado at his workplace, where he was employed as the elections services center manager, and arrested him.
Deputy Jeremiah Price said the victim initially came to the sheriff's office complaining of harassing emails from the suspect. An investigation led to the molestation allegations.
Karen S. Krauss, Sumter County Supervisor of Elections, said Wednesday she is deciding what to do about Coronado's employment.
