Former Rice Lake Pastor In Court on Sexual Assault Charges

A former Rice Lake pastor accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy in 1987 made his initial appearance in Barron County court Wednesday.

Angel Toro, 56, faces four felony counts of third-degree sexual assault and two counts of child enticement.

A criminal complaint says Toro assaulted a then 17-year-old boy in a church bathroom and an office and bought beer for him to drink.

Toro rose to a national leadership position in the United Church of Christ.

He left Rice Lake in 1989 after serving at the First United Methodist Church.
