A former Rice Lake pastor is charged with raping a 17-year-old boy 20 years ago.
Now, that victim is speaking out.

Doug Guillen says he struggled for years with drug and alcohol abuse before putting a gun to his head. He says before he could pull the trigger, he says he realized it's not his fault.

It was a child that saved Doug Guillen from himself.

"I wanted to shoot myself but I cant, I have a little girl. I'll be damned if I'm going to shoot myself and he's still out there," Guillen says.

Guillen, who used to live in Rice Lake, now calls Fort Lauderdale, Florida home. He has a wife and 16-year-old daughter.
Guillen was just 17, when he says his pastor raped him.

The man charged with raping him and forcing him to perform sexual acts also now live in Florida. But, in the summer of 1987 their paths crossed in Wisconsin.

"I think when I see him in court it's going to make me feel a lot better," Guillen says.

56-year-old Angel Toro was a pastor at First United Methodist Church.
Investigators say he recruited Guillen to help fix a fence at the church. He bought him beer and cigarettes, then took advantage of him. Guillen says he can't wait to face Toro in court.

"I want you guys to get the expression on his face when he sees me. I'm not the same little 112 pound boy anymore, it's a totally different ballgame now,” he says. “I don't want his money. I want his life and that's what I'm going to tell the judge. I don't want a cent from him. That man made his money, selling tickets to heaven and none of them going to heaven because Satan sold them the tickets.”

Toro is scheduled to be in Barron County Court for his initial appearance on April 25.
