Cleric faces pending child molestation lawsuit, but Favalora lets him minister
Support group says church officials violate national bishops' sex abuse policy
SNAP urges anyone who "saw, suspected or suffered" clergy crimes to come forward
Organization also wants 'proven, admitted & credibly accused' pedophiles listed on website
They'll also prod anyone who saw, suspected or suffered the priest's crimes to come forward, call police and get help.
SNAP maintains that this violates the US Catholic Bishops Conference national sex abuse policy, which requires that 'credibly accused' priests be suspended while the charges are investigated.
The priest denies the allegation and claimed he would step down but has not done so. He lives on the second floor, directly above a parish day care center. Last year, he also had a special door installed in his office so he could come and go out the back of the building without others watching him.
The victim's father is still active at St. Timothy's, teaching at the parish school and performing as a musician. In an unusual move, last fall, the victim's dad gave a TV news interview to Channel 7.
Castillo also worked at St. Patrick's in Miami Beach, Immaculate Conception in Hialeah and St. Hugh in Coconut Grove. He's originally from Nicaragua and became a priest in 1994.
The parish is at 5400 S.W. 102nd Avenue (305 274 8224). The victim is represented by Miami attorney Jeff Herman (305 931 2200). The priest's bio: http://www.st-timothy-catholic.org/Eng/Clergy.htm
