CLINTON — A local pastor has been charged with sexually assaulting a juvenile and an adult female who were members of his church, police said.
Francisco Moran, 57, of 40 West Main Street, was charged with two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault, two counts of coercion and a single count of risk of injury to a minor, police said. Moran is the pastor at The Good Samaritan Church in Old Lyme.
One of the victim was an underage teenager and the other was an adult, police said.
According to police, the sexual assaults happened on separate occasions last summer in a private residence in Clinton.
Both victims told police that Moran threatened to have them deported if they talked about the sexual assaults, police said.
Police obtained the two arrests warrants for Moran on Thursday. He is being held on $17,500 bond and will be arraigned in Superior Court on Monday.
