PASTOR TO BE ARRAIGNED FOR MOLESTING 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL AND POSSESSING THOUSANDS OF IMAGES OF GRAPHIC CHILD PORNOGRAPHY ON HIS COMPUTER

*Child pornography images include graphic, sexually-explicit photos of 6-year-old female relative

 

WESTMINSTER – A pastor will be arraigned tomorrow for molesting an 8-year-old girl and possessing thousands of images of graphic child pornography on his computer, including of a young female relative. Christopher Raymond Olague, 39, Westminster, is charged with two felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, one felony count each of kidnapping for child molest, attempting to dissuade a witness, using a minor for sex acts, and possession and control of child pornography. He faces sentencing enhancement allegations for kidnapping in the commission of a sexual assault and lewd acts against multiple victims. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 30 years to life in state prison plus an additional 13 years and four months. Olague is being held on $1 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. at the West Justice Center in Westminster. The Department is to be determined.

 

At the time of the crime, Olague is accused of working as a pastor at Refuge Southland Church in Buena Park and as a soccer coach for the American Youth Soccer Organization.

 

On Oct. 5, 2011, the defendant is accused of picking up 8-year-old Jane Doe #1 from her home under the pretense of taking her to play with one of his children. Olague is accused of instead driving the victim to a grocery store parking lot and molesting her by rubbing her legs, thighs and arms. He is accused of unbuttoning his pants, pulling them down slightly, and asking Jane Doe #1 to kiss him on the cheek.

 

When Jane Doe #1 began to cry and asked to be taken home, Olague is accused of giving her $40 and instructing her not to tell the police. He is accused of then driving her home. Jane Doe #1 immediately told her mother about the sexual assault, and the victim’s mother contacted the Huntington Beach Police Department (HBPD).

 

Olague was arrested that day by HPBD and posted $100,000 bail while the investigation was ongoing. During the subsequent investigation, HBPD discovered thousands of images of child pornography on the defendant’s computer. Olague is accused of possessing graphic, sexually-explicit child pornography images, including of a 6-year-old female relative.

 

The defendant was arrested Nov. 23, 2011, by HBPD, who investigated this case.

 

If convicted of these charges, Olague will be prohibited from entering County parks and parks in the Cities of Huntington Beach, Irvine, La Habra, Laguna Hills, Los Alamitos, Westminster, and Yorba Linda because these municipalities recently enacted Ordinances crea
