Rape, child pornography case dismissed against megachurch leader
A California appeals court ordered the dismissal of a criminal case Tuesday against a Mexican megachurch leader on charges of child rape and human trafficking on procedural grounds.
Naasón Joaquín García, the self-proclaimed apostle of La Luz del Mundo, has been in custody since June following his arrest on accusations involving three girls and one woman between 2015 and 2018 in Los Angeles County. Additional allegations of the possession of child pornography in 2019 were later added. He has denied wrongdoing.
The attorney general’s office said it was reviewing the court’s ruling and did not answer additional questions.
García’s attorney, Alan Jackson, said he and his client are “thrilled” by the decision. (So he can rape and traffic more children and women!👿)
