A senior pastor of His Hope Restoration Ministries in Queens village New York City, Reuben Chizor, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for rap*ng two sisters in the church basement.
Queens District Attorney, Richard Brown on Tuesday ruled that the pastor should be put behind bars.
Chizor’s victims were 12- and 14-year-old sisters and members of his church.
The defendant, Chizor took advantage of his position as a senior pastor to satisfy his desires on the teenage girls, claims the court.
Richard Brown said, “He s*xually abused his two young victims for virtually two years, through manipulation and conniving control.
”Trial testimony last month revealed that on July 27, 2011, Chizor r*ped the 14- year-old victim in the church basement, where he lived.
”On Aug 22, 2011, he r*ped the 12-year-old.
”56-year-old chizor continued abusing one or both of the girls through May 2013,” Brown said.
In July 2015, the girls confided in each other they had been r*ped by Chizor and police were notified.
