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.
