Ex-School Counselor in Mobile Awaits Transfer to Prison
April 6, 2005
Mobile, Ala. — A former Roman Catholic high school counselor convicted more than a year ago on sex-related offenses is now in jail awaiting transfer to a state prison to begin serving a five-year sentence.
Nicholas Paul "Brother Vic" Bendillo, 76, was convicted in March 2004 on child enticement and abuse charges involving male students while he worked at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School. He later pleaded guilty to similar charges.
Bendillo, a member of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, a religious order of Catholic educators, worked at McGill-Toolen from 1959 until 1998.
Bendillo's attorney, Don Briskman, said his client surrendered to deputies at the Mobile County Metro Jail on March 31, the deadline set by courts.
"I could not be more pleased for the victims, who had to discuss really embarrassing details of an overall mortifying experience at the hands of this man," Assistant District Attorney Steve Giardini said.
Trial testimony indicated that Bendillo focused his sexual impulses on young men who had family troubles and no father figures. According to his accusers, he would grope and manipulate their genitals under the guise of performing medical treatments.
