A worship team leader who gave electronic keyboard lessons at Agape, 35-year-old David Elifar Verduzco of Santa Ana had befriended the families of the girls, who all attended the church together.
"You were really close friends with my family and now it's hard to trust anyone," said the younger girl in a victim impact statement delivered at Friday's sentencing. "The way I feel now is that I'll be scared forever, and I don't want to remember this at all when I get older."
The father of the other girl called Verduzco a wolf who disguised himself as a sheep to prey on victims, adding the experience nearly broke up the dad's marriage.More »
