LANSING, MI (WILX) - A preliminary hearing for Victor Trevino Junior was waived Thursday morning.

Waving a preliminary hearing means Trevino does not contest the evidence being brought against him and the case will go directly to trial.

Trevino, a Lansing youth pastor, is facing over a dozen charges in two separate cases involving sexual misconduct with minors.

WILX reported in June, 2019, that a girl younger than 14 came forward with allegations that Trevino repeatedly molested her at his family home in Holt.

She said Trevino often hosted sleepovers for kids from church.

The girls said he touched her inappropriately six times between October, 2018, and March, 2019.

After the girls mother was informed, she took her daughters phone and recorded pictures and videos on Snapchat from Trevino that included images of male genitalia.

Since then, Trevino has been awaiting trial.

News 10 will continue to report as the case moves forward.
