OK - SNAP hopes Victory Christian Church case will move forward
A case against a Victory Christian Church employee is set to move forward tomorrow, but he has filed a motion to get the case dropped.
We hope that the case against Israel Castillo is able to move forward and is not dismissed by some sort of technicality. The charges against him – making lewd comments and indecent proposals to a 14 year old girl – are serious and disturbing. Even more disturbing is the trend of child sexual abuse at Victory Christian Church, where Castillo worked as a janitor. Recently, another Victory Christian Church employee was sentenced to 55 years in prison for the rape of a 13-year-old girl on church grounds. Five other VCC officials stand accused of misdemeanors resulting from their delayed response to reporting that crime.
The victim in the case against Castillo deserves to have her day in court. We hope that the judge in this case will allow proceedings to move forward.
