Youth Pastor Guilty Of Sexual Assault

Colorado: A former Colorado Springs youth pastor accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl faces up to 90 days in jail and at least 10 years’ probation under a recent plea agreement with prosecutors.

Joshua Amoroso, 22, agreed June 30 to plead guilty to one count of sexual assault on a child, a felony.

In exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss 17 additional counts related to Amoroso’s three-month relationship with the girl, whom he met while counseling children at Gateway Church in Colorado Springs.
