Bronx cop who moonlit as pastor charged with assaulting teenager

An NYPD officer was released on his own recognizance last night after being arraigned and arrested in the Bronx for having allegedly raped a 16-year-old three times last spring.

Vladimir Sosa, 38, an officer in the 46th precinct who also worked as an assistant pastor in a church, was charged with three counts of rape, endangering the welfare of a child and various counts of sexual misconduct.

The alleged victim was a member of the church congregation in which Sosa worked, and "the mother found out and complained," said a law enforcement source.

Sosa is next due in court April 17.
