According to the prosecutor's office, Peterson met at least one of the five women he is alleged to have assaulted through activities at church, where he reportedly was was an active member.

 

Peterson was affiliated with Peterson Wealth Management and SmartStocks.com. He could face life in prison if he is guilty.
