Juan Garcia Castillo, 35, had served as an associate pastor at St. Patrick's Parish in Carlsbad
A former associate pastor at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Carlsbad was sentenced Friday to 60 days in jail and three years probation after being found guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery last month.
Rev. Juan Garcia Castillo will also be required to register as a sex offender, the District Attorney's office said. He was convicted Dec. 17 of groping a seminary student in a Carlsbad restaurant on Feb. 4, 2018.
An attorney and former U.S. Naval officer who was studying to become a priest accused Castillo of grabbing his genitals after a night of drinking in a Carlsbad restaurant and bar.
Surveillance video showing the three men drinking in the restaurant was submitted as evidence.
The victim said all the drinking eventually made him sick so he went to the bathroom where he vomited.
"All of the sudden I feel him behind me," the man, who did not want to be identified, said. He testified that Castillo began touching him around his thighs and waist as he stood over a toilet.

why cant the MSM just STATE he was a faggot? Is it really that difficult? I dont recall priests molesting altar girls..
What was he thinking? It was suicide to molest a military lawyer and think there would be no repercussions. Good for the complainant!
That the Catholic seminary student would want to advance his career in the church?
