Bronx ‘Spiritualist’ Accused of Sex Abuse: ‘I Am With God’
The Bronx “spiritualist” who was arrested earlier this week for sexual abuse and other charges says that his accusers are the ones who are crazy—and claims that he is “with God in principle,” according to the New York Daily News. “What happens on earth is erased here,” Cristian Robles told the newspaper. Robles is charged with eight crimes, “ranging from sexual abuse to illegal fortune telling.” He allegedly held a knife to one man’s throat while “attempting to anally penetrate him,” caused a woman to miscarry, and placed “death curses” on his patients and their families. He also reportedly gave his patients a substance to drink that would make them “tremble and shake on the floor” before sexually abusing them, authorities said. He is currently being held on a $200,000 bond in a Bronx jail.
