Former Bishop Charged With Sex Abuse Fired From Corrections Job

Associated Press/April 27, 2004

Salt Lake City -- The former Mormon bishop accused of molesting several teenage boys is no longer an employee with the Department of Corrections.

Department of Corrections spokesman Jack Ford says David James Gomez was fired from his post as director of Utah Correctional Industries Thursday.

The 57-year-old was charged Thursday with three counts of first-degree felony sodomy on a child and three counts of second-degree felony sex abuse of a child.

The allegations stem from alleged incidents ten to 13 years ago, when Gomez was bishop of the Hunter Tenth Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
