SAN BERNARDINO – A San Bernardino man was arrested for the continuous sexual abuse of multiple children and his girlfriend was arrested for failing to protect the children.
In February 2018, an investigation into the accusation that Jose Antonio Castillo had sexually abused a 17-year-old victim since she was 3-years-old began. Early on in the investigation, detectives learned that there were four additional juvenile victims living in the home. Evidence was collected, including interviews which led to the arrest of Castillo on February 17, 2018.
The investigation also revealed that Irene Rodriguez Torres, who is in a relationship with Castillo was aware of the sexual abuse. Torres was arrested for failing to report the incident and protect the children who were under her care. It was also learned that she attempted to dissuade the victims from speaking to detectives. On February 26, 2018, Torres was arrested for Child Abuse. Torres pleaded guilty and was released from custody. She will be on felony probation for four years. Castillo’s case is still pending at this time.
