February 16, 2019
The former New Mexico priest charged with rape and kidnapping has been released. Marvin Archuleta is accused of raping a former student at Holy Cross Catholic School in northern New Mexico in the early 1980s.
The 81-year-old was arrested at his Albuquerque home in early February. The attorney general's office filed a motion to keep him behind bars until trial Friday.
However, Judge Matthew Wilson decided to release Archuleta with GPS monitoring. The former priest is also banned from being around children.
