CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A Cleveland pastor accused of sexually abusing young girls is on trial.

Ubaldo Ocasio was the pastor of a storefront church on Clark Avenue when he allegedly committed his crimes.

Prosecutors says Ocasio sexually abused and raped girls 10, 12, 14, and 15 years old.  

 Ocasio was offered a deal, which he rejected, in order to keep the victims from testifying. 

The trial is expected to take a week. 

If convicted of all charges, he could get up to 205 years to life in prison.
