Convicted pastor faces 10 years for sexual assault


Guam- A jury convicted a former Baptist pastor, whose teenage victim saw him as a father figure, during trial at the Superior Court of Guam on Thursday.

Renato Bosi was found guilty of two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct as a first-degree felony, two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct as a misdemeanor, and child abuse as a misdemeanor.

“This perpetrator used his position as a man of God to strike fear in his young victim who looked to him for guidance,” said Chief Prosecutor J. Basil O’Mallan III.

Bosi faces a minimum of 10 years imprisonment at the Department of Corrections. Sentencing is scheduled for July 24, 2019, before Judge Vernon Perez.
