Youth pastor Carloe Estigo arrested

CarloeEstigoYouth pastor Carloe Estigo was arrested for allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl. The charges include sexual penetration with a foreign object, so we are looking at another case of a youth pastor raping a 14-year-old girl. I think we’ve identified the official danger zone for youth pastors.

Estigo faces felony charges of lewd acts upon a child between 14 and 15 years old and sexual penetration of a minor under 16 years old with a foreign object, said Teresa Drenick, Alameda County deputy district attorney.

Estigo pleaded not guilty.

Estigo was a volunteer youth pastor at Castro Valley Church of the Nazarene. In a bizarre move, the church password protected their website. What are they trying to hide?

An adult male who volunteers to be an unpaid youth pastor should raise a red flag. Right?
