TARRANT COUNTY, Texas (WRIC) — Geronimo ‘Pastor G’ Aguilar’s legal proceedings are far from over.

Aguilar was convicted of sexually assaulting two girls when they were just 11 and 13-years-old in Texas on Wednesday.

The defense has requested a pre-sentence report, which could take a couple of months. Sentencing may take place as soon as September. Prosecutors plan to push for life behind bars.

In Texas, both the defense and the prosecution will be allowed to call witnesses at Aguilar’s sentencing. Prosecutors have told 8News investigator Kerri O’Brien that they have several people lined up. We could hear from witnesses we never heard from during the trial . 8News was also told a number of the potential witnesses are from here in Richmond.

While the defense wouldn’t talk to 8News on camera, they have told other media outlets they plan to appeal.

The victims say yesterday’s verdict brings closure for themselves and their families.

They’ve been living with the pain of this abuse for more than 20 years — and they say they only came forward when they heard about the allegations of sexual abuse against a 16-year-old at the Richmond Outreach Center (ROC) Church in Richmond. They decided then it was time to step up and speak out and stop this man from hurting others.Stay with 8News for more on this developing story.
