Former Clovis school employee sentencing

Posted: Updated:

Clovis, NM - A former school resource officer accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager will be sentenced this week.

Victor Castillo, an ex-police officer in Portales, entered the plea to 14 of 35 felony sex charges, including sexual exploitation of a child and sexual contact with a minor.

The charges stem from incidents from May through July last year.

In addition to the relationship with the 16-year-old girl, police say Castillo had thousands of photos of young girls on his phone.

He faces up to 27 years behind bars.
