A settlement was reached in the 2010 case of a Hispanic woman against the Evansville Catholic Diocese and others.
A confidential settlement agreement was reached in the case where Silvia Gameros alleged the diocese, employees and the Catholic Community of Washington asked her to cover up the rape of her developmentally disabled daughter in 2007.
The agreement, filed earlier this month in Daviess Circuit Court, was signed between Gameros and the diocese was confidential and claims against the diocese, the Catholic Community of Washington and employees Sister Karen Durliat, Kande Batz and Jorge Gomez were dismissed.
A default judgment was issued on Fredy Mendez-Morales, the man who pled guilty to raping Gameros' daughter during an abstinence retreat at the former St. Mary's School on Nov. 4, 2007. Mendez-Morales was ordered to pay over $1 million to Gameros and her daughter in the case, based on emotional and physical pain and suffering.
Mendez-Morales pled guilty to a rape charge in 2009 and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Officials with the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Mendez-Morales was then deported back to his native El Salvador in 2010 after a temporary visa expired.

Considering we have no border control, he was probably back in the USA within a couple of months and is now living here under a different name.
Like this one. He has been deported back to Mexico from the US 10 times already.
ELOY, Ariz. -
A 27-year-old Mexican national was arrested after he allegedly led deputies on a pursuit and then jumped into a water-filled canal.
Pinal County sheriff’s office says one of their K-9 deputies saw an SUV driving recklessly on I-10, near Eloy.
The deputy saw the vehicle speeding, weaving in and out of traffic and following other vehicles too closely.
PCSO identified the driver as Alejandro Castillo-Padilla.
When the deputy tried to stop the SUV, PCSO says Padilla ignored him and led him on a pursuit.
At one point, Padilla turned off, allegedly ran several stop signs and drove at nearly 90 mph.
Padilla eventually stopped at Wheeler Road and Baumgartner Road and ran into a canal.
PCSO says Padilla began wading through two foot deep water and ignored the deputy’s commands to stop.
The K-9 deputy told Padilla he was going to release his dog if he didn’t stop, but he continued into the water.
The deputy released his K-9, named Ares, and he helped the deputy get Padilla into custody.
According to Sheriff Paul Babeu, Padilla told the deputy he ran because he has been deported back to Mexico from the US 10 times already.
He was last deported in June after being in prison for 15 months, says U.S. Border Patrol.
Padilla allegedly told deputies he walked across the border again two weeks ago.
Padilla was booked into the Pinal County Jail for felony flight and reckless driving and an immigration hold was placed on him.
