JOLIET — A Minnesota pastor accused of having an affair with a 16-year-old girl told a Will County judge Friday he wants to return to his home state.
Gustaro Resendiz Talabera waived extradition one day after his Thursday arrest in Joliet. Judge Marzell Richardson told him he’s been charged in Minnesota with criminal sexual conduct and deprivation of custodial parental rights.
The 39-year-old Talabera, shackled and wearing a white shirt and black pants, asked the judge through an interpreter what his second charge means — the judge said he didn’t know — and when he will be returned to Minnesota.
“As soon as possible,” Richardson said.
Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom of Minnesota said the girl with whom Talabera is accused of having an affair didn’t go to school Wednesday.
She told her mother she would be home sick, but she was missing. The girl, a parishioner, has now been taken into protective custody.
A woman who identified herself as Talabera’s wife told the parents she believed her husband and their daughter had run away together. Talabera lives in West St. Paul.
