Priest accused of child molestation let free in La Vega

The Public Prosecution Office in La Vega has said that it will appeal the decision of a La Vega court to allow the priest Miguel Florenzán Ulloa, to go free, even though he has been accused of having sex with minors.

Instead of coercive measures of jail time, the priest was allowed to make monthly appearances at court. The prosecutors had asked for a year in preventive custody but the judge said the accused had promised to be available whenever the authorities requested him.

The judge also explained that the Unit for Care for Victims of Domestic and Family Violence and Sexual Crimes had launched an investigation into Florenzán Ulloa, who is a priest of the Order of Saint Augustine and who works in a private school in La Vega.

The priest was arrested on 9 December 2017 based on the statement of one victim but others are expected to come forward.
