Here's something every mother of a 14-year-old girl fears: finding e-mails to her from the family's 44-year-old church pastor saying, "Okay, picture dis. U making out with me n my lips are really cracked n dry. As u pull away a lil piece of skin gets stuck 2 u" and, "There are no ways to describe the most gorgeous, beautiful and bootylicious girl I know."

Ricardo Avalos Maffey of Santa Ana was found guilty by a jury Monday of sending those e-mails and--worse--kissing the girl at prayer services and in his office at Apostolic Christian Church in San Clemente. He went on to touch her leg and butt and try to set up a meeting for sex.

As you'd expect from this Man of Fraud, he tried to blame the 14-year-old for coming on to him.

The jury didn't buy it. Maffey was convicted on five felony counts of lewd acts upon a child and one felony count of contacting a minor with the intent to engage in child molestation.

He could get up to six years leading the prayer service in state prison at his April 15 sentencing in Santa Ana.

Here's the Orange County district attorney's office's statement on Maffey's conviction:

March 14, 2011

PASTOR CONVICTED OF MOLESTING 14-YEAR-OLD FEMALE PARISHIONER AND SENDING VICTIM SEXUAL E-MAILS

SANTA ANA - A Protestant pastor of the Apostolic Christian Church in San Clemente was convicted today of molesting a 14-year-old female parishioner that he met through his job. Ricardo Avalos Maffey, 44, Santa Ana, was found guilty by a jury of five felony counts of lewd acts upon a child and one felony count of contacting a minor with the intent to engage in child molest. He faces a maximum sentence of six years in state prison at his sentencing April 15, 2011, in Department C-41, Central Justice Center, Santa Ana.

Maffey met 14-year-old Jane Doe through his role as a pastor and began grooming the victim by spending time alone with her while the victim was volunteering in the church office.

Between May 2008 and August 2008, the defendant violated his position of trust by engaging in illegal sexual contact with Jane Doe. On multiple occasions, Maffey kissed Jane Doe on the mouth while the two were alone after prayer service or in the church office.   The defendant also inappropriately touched the victim's leg and buttocks for his sexual gratification.

During this time, the defendant sent numerous e-mails to the victim to arrange future meetings and disclose his sexual urges. The defendant wrote statements including, "Okay, picture dis. U making out with me n my lips are really cracked n dry. As u pull away a lil piece of skin gets stuck 2 u," and, "There are no ways to describe the most gorgeous, beautiful and bootylicious girl I know."

The victim's mother discovered some of the e-mails and contacted the church. The church contacted the police.

During the trial, Jane Doe testified that Maffey instructed her to delete his e-mails to prevent her parents from reading them and told her to e-mail him at work so that his wife would not discover the e-mails on his personal e-mail account.

Evidence was presented during the trial that Maffey confessed to the unlawful sexual conduct to police officers. The defendant testified in court, however, that he had not engaged in any unlawful sexual contact with the victim. Maffey denied kissing Jane Doe on the lips and claimed that he had previously kissed the victim on the forehead and cheek as part of Pentecostal practice. He also said that on one occasion Jane Doe unexpectedly kissed him, but it ended quickly and he was not the instigator.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department investigated this case. Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker of the Sexual Assault Unit is prosecuting this case.

It is good to note that justice has been served for this true offender of minor molestation. Several similar cases all over are still waiting for justice. Hopefully, all those who have committed similar crimes will  be held responsible for the very unlawful act that they have done.

well hmmm...if your cracked dry lips got stuck to her that would have been the DNA they needed to really put you away. All I can hope is that no creepy man does that to your daughter!!!

I dont get it?? if this guy had an attraction for 14 year old mexican girls, why didnt he just drive south 3 hours where he could indulge in Tijuana.. he wouldnt be in a courtroom if he just did the simple thing like that.. yeah, maybee 3 hours is is too time comsuming and a tank of gas is costly but than again he wouldnt be going to prison over one 14 year old girl.. in Tijuana, he could of had 20 to 100 to choose from 24/7.. just a 20 dollar bill or 200 pesos could of got him a smogarsboard of girls and women..especially if he spoke espanol which could of even lowerd the prices down to 10 dollars or 160 pesos.. very sexy too, not like here in America where the hookers are drug addicts or irritable from drugs and rush you out quick.. In Tijuana, they give you 20 minutes to finish, which is actually a long time for a cheap price.. they even keep condoms and lube in their little purses..they are dressed sexy, they dont smell of cigaretts and their not aten up by drugs.. When I hear of southern California men who rape or molest mexican women or mexican teens, I always wonder if these rapist even know about the treasure just blocks from the mexican border.. Thats one benefit Men in southern Cali have, especially if the Man prefers HOTT Mexican women and teen girls..plus the TJ gals wont call the cops or even scream when your laying on top of them. on YOUTUBE, TYPE ''TIJUANA ZONA ZORTE'' and you all will see what Im talking about.

Dentistry and cheap hookers. That's what's great about living close to Mexico. But the question is, why do the hookers stay down there--the $10 rub out would seem to be a 'job Americans wont do'

So Mitch, you been down there? I went down there 2 months for the first time and couldnt belive the variety lined up standing against the wall for blocks and blocks.. I even asked the gals if they had penises and they did not.. I almost fainted and I kept pinching myself to see if I was dreaming.. after that day, My Life changed forever..I no longer chase women at bars or clubs.. I dont hit on Women standing at the bus stop anymore or waitresses at applebees.. Now that I know whats behind that border wall 24/7, I no longer have to face rejection.. only flaw though is these TJ Chicks are camera shy..I tried taking their picture and they either turn away or close their eyes.
