San Diego Minister Pleads Guilty To Molesting Teen Boys

Posted: Updated:

A minister and music teacher at five churches in San Diego and Riverside counties pleaded guilty today to molesting three teenage boys he mentored.

Jimmie Xray Robinson, 47, of Los Angeles, entered his plea before El Cajon Judge Peter Deddeh, who will sentence the defendant to 17 years and four months in state prison on June 30.

Robinson admitted a felony charge of committing a lewd act on a child under 14, along with an allegation of substantial sexual conduct. The defendant also pleaded guilty to committing a lewd act on two 15-year-old boys.

Robinson additionally admitted two prior convictions for domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon, said Deputy District Attorney Genaro Ramirez.

Members of a fugitive task force arrested Robinson on Jan. 24 while he was playing piano at a church service in the Stockton district of San Diego.

Last September, the El Cajon Police Department received a report alleging that Robinson had sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy he had counseled after meeting him through his church work, said El Cajon police Lt. Tim Henton.

Investigators discovered two similar accusations had surfaced over the past eight years that did not lead to criminal charges.

In January, DNA evidence tied Robinson to the El Cajon case, the lieutenant said.

The allegations made by the three youths were very similar, Henton said.

The victims were involved in a mentoring program that Robinson conducted on his own, not through any of the congregations he worked with, Henton said, adding that the defendant was known to the teens as "Xray," his legal middle name.

Robinson traveled from Los Angeles to the Riverside and San Diego areas on weekends as part of his ministry, the lieutenant said.
