SAN ANTONIO -- A man blamed his lack of prayer for causing him to grope a 12-year-old girl during a worship service on the city's Southwest Side, an arrest affidavit stated.
Ramon Sanchez, 73, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of indecency with a child. He was being held in the Bexar County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail.
According to the affidavit, Sanchez befriended the girl by giving her money while they attended services at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses at 319 Price. Sanchez told the girl that every time she saw him leave to go to the restroom, she was to follow him so he could give her money, the affidavit stated.
On one occasion in January, the two met outside a bathroom, where Sanchez hugged, kissed and fondled the girl before handing her a $20 bill, the affidavit stated.
When detectives questioned Sanchez about the girl's claims, he told them that he usually would pray to help keep thoughts of young girls from "reaching my heart" but during that one incident, things happened so quickly, he didn't have time to pray, the affidavit stated. Sanchez also told detectives that he prayed for forgiveness afterward, the affidavit stated.
