Authorities said Zamora abruptly left the Apostolic Assembly Church in Lindsay in 2000 and moved to Lodi – where detectives discovered he was still an active pastor.

Tulare detectives said the incidents occurred between 1994 and 2000, while Zamora was a pastor at the church, and at other locations within the county.
