ODESSA - Bond has been set for the former Odessa volunteer youth minister accused of having a sexual relationship with a young girl.
26-year-old Angel De Los Santos is now being held on a $600,000 bond for charges of sexual assault of a child.
Police say the victim started getting text messages from him when she was 13.
The messages started as religious but later turned sexual.
According to the criminal report, the girl's parents thought she was hanging out with friends when De Los Santos would pick her up.
The pair would then hold hands and make out.
They started having sex when she was 14 and continued to do so once a week for about two and a half years.
