Monday, June 10, 2019

A former track coach at Fremont High School will spend two years behind bars after admitting to having a sexual relationship with one of the runners he coached. Moses Castillo was facing five counts of felony child seduction after allegations surfaced of an inappropriate relationship with a student who was 17 years old at the time. On Monday, Castillo was sentenced to two years behind bars and four years of probation after pleading guilty to one count of child seduction in March of 2018.

According to the probable cause affidavit, both the victim and Castillo admitted the girl was 17 when the relationship started. The victim told investigators that Castillo told her not to tell anyone. The victim also told investigators that she tried to end the relationship with Castillo several times, but he would “guilt trip her into staying.

Castillo resigned from his coaching position at the school in December of 2017. Once the school learned of the allegations, they said they contacted police. Castillo was banned from school grounds and also instructed not to have any communication with Fremont Community Schools’ students or staff.
