Pastor Allegedly Impregnates Teenage Girl From His Church


A Colorado pastor was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly impregnated a teenage girl. 

According to arrest documents, the girl became pregnant and gave birth to a child which 22-year-old Romello Leach admitted was his.

The 14-year-old girl told authorities that she had sex with Leach at least twice once back in 2016 and once in the beginning of 2017.

Police say, Leach, is associated with several Colorado churches that met at a Colorado Springs hotel

After noticing her daughter’s belly getting bigger, the mother then took her daughter to a pregnancy center in Colorado Springs, where she later found out her daughter was indeed pregnant. 

An employee at the pregnancy center then notified authorities of the situation.

Leach was later arrested and taken into custody after he admitted on a recorded call with his wife that he did sleep with the 14-year-old and the child she carried was his.

Authorities say he admitted his actions were wrong but that he was full of lust at the time.

The teenage girl who remains unidentified at this time (due to her age) gave birth to her child in September of 2017 at the age of 15.

Leach is currently in custody with no bond until they can further investigate if there are any other teen victims that were sexually assaulted.

It is unknown if Leach has a lawyer at this time.
