Wanted man arrested at border
SAN YSIDRO — A Salvadoran man wanted by Sacramento authorities on a $1.35 million bail arrest warrant for lewd or lascivious activities with a child younger than 14 was apprehended this week by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Jose Antonio Galindo Castro, who had been living illegally in the United States for 17 years, was taken into custody after CBP officers checked his fingerprints against the Automated Fingerprint Identification System and discovered the outstanding warrant.
CBP spokesman Vincent Bond said Mr. Castro, 36, arrived at the San Ysidro port U-turn booth as a passenger in a southbound pickup truck and asked to speak with officers because he wanted to leave the United States but could not persuade the driver to enter Mexico.
Sex abuse suit filed under new law
WILMINGTON — A man who says he was molested as a teen by a Catholic priest became the first person to sue under a new law allowing child sexual abuse victims to seek damages for misdeeds that occurred years ago.
Robert Quill, 52, a Wilmington native who lives in Marathon, Fla., filed a federal lawsuit yesterday purporting that as a teenager, he was molested at least 300 times by the Rev. Francis G. DeLuca, who worked for the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington for 35 years.
Marijuana dealer sent to prison
BOSTON — A Massachusetts man was sentenced this week in federal court to 151 months in prison on charges of conspiracy to distribute more than 220 pounds of marijuana, money laundering, structuring financial transactions and tax evasion.
Sean P. Bucci, 34, of North Reading was sentenced to prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release, said June W. Stansbury, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration special agent in charge at the agency’s Boston office.
Evidence presented during a nine-day trial proved that dating back to at least the late 1990s, Bucci was a large-scale marijuana dealer who sold thousands of pounds of the drug from his home in North Reading, and laundered hundreds of thousands of dollars through various bank accounts owned by him and his mother, DEA spokesman Garrison K. Courtney said.
