FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Virginia pastor has been indicted a second time by a North Texas grand jury for allegedly sexually assaulting a child more than 15 years ago.

The indictment against Geronimo Aguilar (AG’-yih-lar) was returned Wednesday in Tarrant County and includes two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14.

The indictment contends the abuse occurred in 1996 and 1997 in North Texas.

The 43-year-old Aguilar was indicted in September for the sexual assault of another child those same years. He remains free on bond.

He was arrested in May at his Richmond, Va., home based on allegations made by the alleged victims, now grown.

Aguilar’s Virginia-based lawyer, David Carlson, was not immediately available for comment Wednesday but previously told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that his client denies any misconduct.
