Man to Enter Plea for Indecency With a Child charge

A man charged with Indecency with a Child is expected to enter a plea Thursday morning.

According to the arrest affidavit, in August of 2013 76-year-old Johnny Botello, who was a pastor at an

Assembly of God church


on Sheppard Access Road, was accused of Indecency with a Child by Sexual Contact. Authorities say the victim was 10 years old at the time of the incident.

The victim told forensic investigators that Botello took the child to the church office where they were alone, when he touched the victim inappropriately on the chest and under the victim's clothing.

When police spoke with Botello, he admitted touching the victim's body inappropriately at the church office.

Botello is expected to enter an open plea tomorrow in 78th District Court at 8:30 a.m.
