Sexual Abuse Cases Settled in CA Diocese, SNAP Responds
Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests
Two of three child sex abuse and cover up lawsuits
against the San Bernardino Diocese have been settled for $3.8
million. The third case is still going through the trial
The cases are against Fr. Alejandro “Alex” Castillo,
who has several abuse allegations against him. A veteran clergy
sex abuse attorney says that diocesan officials "actively worked
with Father Castillo to silence the victims."
We are grateful for the brave victims, whistleblowers,
and law enforcement personal who worked to expose these
allegations and to hold those responsible accountable. We
believe others who saw, suspected or suffered Fr. Castillo's
crimes are still struggling in silence. We beg them to find the
courage to speak up, get help, expose wrongdoers, protect kids
and start healing.
