Ex Okla. church worker has hearing on sex charges

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A former Oklahoma megachurch employee accused of using a computer to commit a sex crime is slated to have a preliminary hearing.

Twenty-3-year-old Israel Shalom Castillo's hearing is scheduled for Friday morning. Castillo is charged with making a lewd proposal to a minor and using a computer to commit a sex crime.

Castillo is 1 of 2 former employees of the Tulsa megachurch Victory Christian Center who are accused of sex crimes against a child.

The other former employee, 20-year-old Chris Denman, has a hearing scheduled for Oct. 11.

A judge entered not guilty pleas this week for five other church employees accused of waiting more than two weeks to report the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Castillo.

    An underfunded, little-known Democratic candidate for governor has a new tool to use in attacking the Republican incumbent after the federal government stripped Oklahoma of authority to decide how to spend millions in education funding because of the state's repeal of national academic standards.
