Former church usher imprisoned for molesting girl
July 26, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Julian Lopez

The former Daly City church who pleaded no contest to inappropriately touching two young girls on separate occasions was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Julian Lopez, 69, has credit of 194 days against the term and must serve 85 percent of the remainder.

In 2008, Lopez served at Ministerio Mundial in Daly City when a teen says that, when she was 10, he approached her upstairs where she was doing homework and both kissed and fondled her. The girl said Lopez threatened to harm her parents if she told but she informed her mother who contacted the church pastor. The pastor called a church meeting at which Lopez reportedly confessed and asked forgiveness from some members of the congregation, according to prosecutors.

Lopez was removed as an usher but not the church.

Prosecutors said the girl brought the accusations to police now after having trouble attending the same church as her alleged abuser. The subsequent investigation led to another reported victim who said around the same time in 2008, when she was 13, Lopez also grabbed her twice and touched her inappropriately.

Had Lopez gone to a jury trial, he faced a life sentence if convicted because of the multiple victim allegation.
