A pastor ended up behind bars after being caught raping a teenage girl over a period of 6 months, according to police in Florida.

New Port Richey police said that they have arrested 52-year-old Gerardo Martinez after being accused of raping the 17-year-old girl in his office and her home.

Martinez was charged with sexual battery.

He was booked into the Pasco County jail and his bail has been set at $100,000.

According to the police investigation, Martinez was the pastor of the Miracle Christian Church, which is located at 5724 State Road 54.

He is married and has three children.

Martinez convinced the 17-year-old girl’s mother to let him spend time with the teen as she was suffering from multiple personalities disorder.

The pastor told the teen that one of her personalities was a demon.

He then told her that in order to drive the demon out of her, they had to have sex.

Over six months, Martinez and the teen had sex at the church, in her home, and at the parking lot of a Publix supermarket.

After 6 months, the teen told her mother about the sexual encounters and she called the police.
