Child Claims She Was Sexually Assaulted At Georgetown Church

Updated: Wednesday, August 20 2014, 10:28 PM CDT

Sexually assaulted in a place of worship, that's the allegation that has a man from Georgetown locked up in jail.

The Iglesia Evangelical Cristiana Espiritual church sits on a quiet road just outside Georgetown.  Inside is where a child says Marcos Azael Herrera (pictured) sexually assaulted her, police say.  She was four years old at the time.

The graphic details of the assault are laid out in the arrest affidavit.

It also describes Herrera's relationship with the church.  Seventeen at the time, documents say the pastor gave him the position of "preacher."

A member of the church told us off camera it was an unofficial title.  She adds when the allegations came out, Herrera was excommunicated.

Now at age 23 Herrera is in jail on four counts of sexual assault of a child.  His bond is $100,000 on each count.

Since Herrera was around other children at the time, the obvious question is did he do this to anyone else.  That's something the Williamson county sheriff's office is looking into.
