Pastor Charged With Sex Assault

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The former pastor of a church in Bethlehem was charged today with sexual assault for a relationship he allegedly had with a teenage girl.

Police said Santos Adiel Rosado had sex with the 14-year-old girl during a relationship that apparently lasted for as long as two years.

Police said the victim and her family were members of the Bethlehem Community Fellowship Church on Marvine Street. They said she and Rosado would meet in both their homes.

Rosado was already free on bail on charges stemming from contact police said he had with other juveniles.

Rosado was also arrested in February on theft and conspiracy charges for allegedly making fraudulent casino player cards while working at the Sands casino in Bethlehem.

Police said Rosado gave the bogus cards to another man, who used them to rack up nearly $1,500 in winnings.
