Police: Pastor Touches Woman Seeking Spiritual Advice

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A pastor from a Minneapolis ministry has been charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct after he allegedly rubbed his erection on a woman to whom he had been giving spiritual guidance.

Police arrested 52-year-old Steven Rogers (who also goes by Robinson), a pastor associated with Deliverance Ministries Body of Christ, on July 6.

According to a police report, Rogers was delivering some religious literature to the victim’s Bloomington home on July 5 when the incident occurred. Rogers ran his fingers through the victim’s hair, kissed her on the temple and rubbed his penis on her vaginal area during an “embrace.”

The report said the victim sought out Rogers to help her deal with repressed memories of sexual assaults she suffered as a teen. The victim had been receiving spiritual guidance from Rogers for nearly a year.

She reported the incident to Bloomington police on July 6.

During an interview with police, in which he admitted to the victim’s version of events, Rogers said he has trouble getting erections. When he and the victim embraced, Rogers said he felt something he hadn’t in some time.

Rogers told police that “his bottom part” touched the victim. He also said that he violated the victim’s trust and was guilty.

Rogers has been charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree, which is a felony and can be punished by up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $20,000.

    That’s some embrace!. What was in that literature? This excuse is SO bad, it’s commical. However, I will bet that a judge will believe him and feel for the poor dude, I mean “man of god” and his penalty will be a prescription for viagra.

    “He felt something down there that he hasn’t felt in quite some time”.

    If you forgot what it was it must have been a helluva a long time.

      Someone should ask him if he has been praying to John Paul II. This could be the second miracle they are holding up his sainthood over.

  12. See BS says:

    Seems like Al Gore did a lot more to that massage therapist in Oregon.

    1. Always blame the other party says:

      So I guess that makes what this guy did okay.

      1. See BS says:

        What did he do? Give her a hug with a woody?
