Tampa Judge Denies Bail for Youth Minister Accused of Sexual Abuse

Comments Off

River of Life Church youth minister Justin Peterson admitted to forcing a 7 year old child to perform oral sex. Now a judge has denied bail for the 31 year old youth minister. The abuse survivor, now an adult, confronted the minister about the abuse and he readily admitted to abusing the young girl. Apparently, there is another victim who has not come forward. Peterson remains in jail without bail prior to his trial on two counts of capital sexual battery on a minor.
