Oscar D. Perez Perez, Phony Baloney Catholic Bishop, Gets 330 Years for Molesting 5 Boys

Thumbnail image for oscar-perez_ocsd.jpg
Orange County Superior Court Judge Steven Bromberg today sentenced self-professed apostolic pastor and bishop Oscar D. Perez Perez to 330 years in prison for molesting five boys in his Lake Forest apartment. Bromberg justified the maximum allowable sentence on the danger the 69-year-old poses to the community. On the bright side, with time served and good behavior, Perez could get out in less than half that time--unless future DA Tony Rackauckas IV fights the perv's release.

Josh Dulaney blogged about the jury finding Perez guilty in July . . .

Guilty: Pervy Pastor Oscar D. Perez Perez Faces 330 Years For Sexual Assault on Boys

. . . and I had covered the phony baloney holy man's arrest.

Oscar D. Perez Perez, Iglesia Antigua Católica Bishop, Accused of Lewd Acts with Boys

He billed himself as the top holy man at Spanish-language Iglesia Antigua Católica, which rented space from St. George's Episcopal Parish in Laguna Hills and is not affiliated with Orange County's Roman Catholic Diocese (escaped this one, Brownie!)

Perez told his flock--more than 60 of whom sent letters to Bromberg urging leniency for the good work their church leader has done--that he would take their boys, generally in the 9- to 11-year-old range and who had helped him with services, to his apartment to groom them to become future ministers during overnights.

Of course, he quickly groomed them for something else, with assaults that included "sodomy, oral copulation, sexual penetration, touching of the victim's penis and/or buttocks, kissing, and hugging," as prosecutors laid out for the jury.

Perez warned the boys they would go to hell if they told anyone.

"You're a predator," Bromberg told Perez today, perhaps adding for the Perez Perez emphasis a second, "You're a predator."

His sickness was exposed when an 11-year-old boy defied the promised date with Satan, telling his mother that Perez during a July 2011 sleepover French kissed him and rubbed his penis. That led to an Orange County Sheriff's investigation that determined numerous times since 2008 the pastor sodomized and rubbed the penis and buttocks of a second 11-year-old boy.

News of Perez's arrest in September 2011 and further investigation led to the discovery of three other boys under age 14 he had molested, and the Orange County District Attorney's office beefed up the charges against the supposed man of God this past January.

The jury in July convicted Perez on 22 felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, four felony counts of lewd acts on a child, and sentencing enhancement allegations for lewd acts against multiple victims.

Bromberg's three century prison sentence includes lifetime registration as a sex offender.

What is this fool?  An Old Catholic who broke away after the Vatican Council in 1870?  If so and if you know anything about their history......it figures....

@BetoMetroDos @ocweekly I don't know if "phoney baloney" is the right word to use, in this context. #getit?

Fok, it's hot out.  Coker is probably lounging in his pool and didn't even invite us.

Too bad this sexual predator was not employed by the Diocese of Orange with Bishop Brown leading the way.... maybe his sentence for destroying the lives of children via sex crimes would have been similar to what Catholic priest Denis Lyons received... 365 days and probation. Those Catholics really know how to protect pedophiles in and out of the courtroom!!!!
