3 additional young women come forward as possible victims of pastor charged with child sex assault

WESTMINSTER, Colo. - Following the arrest of a Westminster pastor on allegations he sexually assaulted a teenager, three other possible victims have come forward.

Gerald Leroy Clark, 51, is now charged with two counts of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and involving a pattern of abuse. The arrest affidavit reveals that the victim was an aspiring member of the church's ministry team who was helping out the pastor and his wife at their home.

"In one of the charges he's alleged to have committed this offense against a child who was under 15 and the second offense covers the time when the teenager was older than 15 but under 18," explained Pam Russell, spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office.

Clark is pastor of Jericho Ministries International, which initially met at the West View Recreation Center in Westminster, but now holds services at the Greenway Club House in Broomfield, court records state.

Russell went on to say that since the news of Clark's arrest, other potential victims have come forward.

"The investigators are now talking to three young women who have come forward, who are possible victims. They are being interviewed," she said.

Clark's bond was set at $5,000 and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 2.
