Minister Imprisoned For Molesting Three Boys

Posted: Updated:

A minister and music teacher who molested three boys he met through church mentoring programs was sentenced today to 17 years and four months in state prison.

Jimmie Xray Robinson, 48, pleaded guilty in April to three counts of lewd acts on children. He also admitted having substantial sexual contact with the victims and committing prior felonies.

Robinson was associated with five churches in San Diego and Riverside counties.

According to Deputy District Attorney Genaro Ramirez, the defendant molested a boy under the age of 14 for "over a year" between 2000-2002 in the city of San Diego. The case was investigated but no charges were filed, Ramirez said.

"That victim as a result of his molestation was traumatized and is actually in state prison now," the prosecutor said. He didn't specify what crime the victim committed.

The second victim, aged 15, was molested in 2005 in San Diego, but that case also did not result in charges being filed, the prosecutor said.

The third victim, aged 14, was assaulted late last year in El Cajon, and ended up being the one who broke the case because he reported the crime immediately, the prosecutor said.

The youngster showed presence of mind when he "didn't cleanse himself to get rid of physical evidence," Ramirez said.

The prosecutor said DNA connected Robinson to the molestation, and El Cajon police detectives took another look at the previous allegations against the minister.

The defendant has prior convictions in 1997 and 1998 for assault with a deadly weapon and abuse of a cohabitant with a deadly weapon, both in San Diego County.

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.

Robinson, known to the teens by his legal middle name of "Xray," conducted mentoring programs on his own, not through the churches, according to the El Cajon Police Department.
