Minister facing sexual assault charges to be in court

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The Colorado Springs minister accused of sexual assault on a child will be advised of the charges against him Friday.

The hearing for 22-year-old Romello Leach will take place at 12:30 p.m. at the El Paso County Courthouse.

The El Paso County Sheriff's office announced the arrest of Leach on Wednesday, saying he is facing charges of sexual assault on a child with a pattern of abuse. Leach was being held without bail and online jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

The investigation into him began in May of this year. The Sheriff's Office says, Leach is associated with several churches who regularly meet at the Satellite Hotel at 411 Lakewood Circle in Colorado Springs.

They also say he has had access to an unknown number of children/teens. If anyone has been been victimized by him or knows of someone and hasn't reported it please contact the Sheriff's Office at (719) 520-6666.
