Colorado Springs minister caught on tape admitting he impregnated a 14-year-old girl: police

Published

on

Authorities in Colorado Springs have arrested a licensed minister who allegedly impregnated a 14-year-old, KKTV News reports.

Romello Leach, 22, was arrested on multiple felony counts for Sexual Assault on a Child, Pattern of Abuse.

An employee at the Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center came forward after the young teen was taken there by her mother, resulting in a months-long investigation by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit.

“Leach is associated with several churches who regularly meet at the Satellite Hotel, located at 411 Lakewood Circle in Colorado Springs,” the department noted. “He has had access to an unknown number of children/teens and we are seeking information on anyone who may have been victimized by him in the past and not reported it.”

Police are worried there are additional victims.

“He had access to so many given his position and the number of churches he was involved in,” EPSO spokesperson Jacqueline Kirby told KKTV. “It’s very disheartening; as a parent, I’ll tell you, you go to church and you would think that’s one of the places you’re safe from predators … unfortunately, we’ve seen that that’s not the case.”

KKTV reports Leach allegedly admitted he impregnated a 14-year-old during a phone call with his ex-wife that authorities recorded.

“So you didn’t sleep with that girl and get her pregnant?” his ex-wife questioned.

“It happened,” Leach allegedly replied.

Leach allegedly admitted he made a mistake, but claimed it was “not like he will go around and sleep with everybody’s 13 or 14-year-old daughter.”

Gun ownership increases homicides — but only a very specific kind of them: study

Published

on

Does the frequency of gun ownership impact the homicide rate? In the broad sense, many studies have shown it does. But how does it do so exactly?

A new study, conducted at the University of Indianapolis and published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, offers a profound hint. The study, which examined homicide rates by state from 1990 to 2016, suggests that most forms of homicide — those committed against friends, acquaintances, and strangers — are negligibly affected by firearm ownership rates. But one particular category of homicide is sharply correlated with the presence of guns: domestic violence.

Nancy Pelosi clap

House conservatives are livid after President Donald Trump struck a budget deal with Democrats.

"You should veto this bill because it is fiscally irresponsible," the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Trump. "It blows well beyond what was intended with the 2011 [Budget Control Act] caps. Furthermore, it continues spending hundreds of billions more than what we take in a year and does not put our nation on a path towards a balanced budget."

The effort is being driven by first-term Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).

"As the greatest nation in the history of the world, the least we can do is cut a deal that does not sabotage the fiscal future of our nation while endangering millions of American and migrants because of our porous border," the lawmakers wrote. "We can do better."
