My heart goes out to First Lady Feliciano. Last she saw of her husband, he was being the dutiful “pastor”, out passing circulars about the church. But then brotha-man disappeared and apparently First Lady thought that he had been raptured!
Um….gulp…..not quite. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news First Lady. Uh…um….well……
After some banter with the woman on the corner — who was police Sgt. Dhalyn Lakey — Carlos Feliciano, pastor of One Way Family Church in St. Cloud, said he “wanted everything” when she asked if he was offering her $60 for sex, the arrest report stated.
She told Feliciano to drive around the corner to meet her on 15th Street, where the evangelical minister with a congregation on Commerce Center Drive found himself surrounded by police officers and charged with purchasing prostitution services, records show.
“Carlos stated that when he approached the female (UC) he was initially looking for a body rub and when the female asked him if he wanted sex, he said, ‘Yes,'” a detective wrote. “Carlos told me, ‘I failed.'”
Once in custody, 37-year-old Feliciano did not use his one phone call to tell his family what happened.
About 6 p.m. Friday, Feliciano’s wife, who is his fellow pastor at the church, arrived at police headquarters with other family members to file a missing-person report.
Feliciano’s family said he had last been seen handing out fliers and visiting churches around noon that day, according to police. The family left shortly after learning he had been arrested and was being held at the Osceola County Jail on a prostitution charge, with bail set at $500.
