Ex-Tulsa Megachurch Janitor Sentenced To 18 Months

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A former janitor at a Tulsa megachurch who pleaded guilty to making a lewd proposal to a child has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

A Tulsa County judge handed down the sentence Friday to Israel Castillo. Castillo was remanded to the custody of sheriff's deputies.

Castillo worked at the 17,000-member Victory Christian Center. He pleaded guilty in August to sending lewd Facebook messages to a 14-year-old girl at the church. He had no pre-arranged deal with prosecutors.

Castillo had repeatedly pleaded not guilty, saying he did not know the girl who received the messages was underage - a claim refuted by prosecutors.

Another former church janitor, Chris Denman, was sentenced to 55 years in prison last year on various sex charges, including the rape of a 13-year-old girl.
