Pastor arrested on child molestation charges, Tulare Sheriff says


TULARE COUNTY, California (KSEE/KGPE) — A pastor formerly associated with a Lindsay church has been arrested after victims say he molested them when they were children, according to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.

Gustavo Gonzalez Zamora, 68, of Lodi, was arrested after the now-adult victims came forward to report the abuse, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The alleged molestation occurred between 1994 and 2000 at the Apostolic Assembly Church in Lindsay as well as other locations in the county, officials say. Authorities say Zamora left the church in 2000 and moved to Lodi.
