Priest Charged With Molestation Bailed Out By Parishioners

California: A Roman Catholic priest accused of felony sex crimes against a 12-year-old boy has been bailed out by a group of parishioners who believe in his innocence.

Jose Alejandro Castillo pleaded not guilty Tuesday to seven counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under age 14 and one count of forcible lewd and lascivious acts with a child under age 14.

Prosecutors say Castillo molested the boy two years ago, and Ontario police say they suspect he molested at least two other teens.

Hundreds of people affiliated with the Coalition to Exonerate Fr. Alex raised the $24,000 in bail money, said Ted Campos, director of the organization.
