Once Convicted Child Molester and Priest Alejandro Castillo Faces Another Lawsuit
An Ontario priest convicted last year of molesting one boy has been sued for allegedly sexually abusing another.
The Rev. Alejandro “Alex” Castillo was released from jail in April after serving eight months for sexually abusing a then-12-year-old parishioner at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic parish in Ontario in 2008.
The civil suit filed Monday, Sept. 18, in San Bernardino County Superior Court alleges that in 2003 and 2004, Castillo also repeatedly sexually abused a teenaged boy in the same parish.
The parish, the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Bernardino, and the Riverside-based Western Province of the Society of the Divine Word, an order of priests and brothers, are also named in the suit. They are accused of negligence for not doing enough to protect the boy.
According to the suit, Castillo was “a known child predator” before he abused the teenaged boy.
