On March 12, the court the hearing began against the religious. The process was conducted behind closed doors. The trial maintained the total reserve for having a teenager as a victim, which prevented the access of journalists and other strangers to the case.
In 2018, the religious defenders demanded a special audition with which they wanted the Chicas to be able to face the process in freedom because he was diabetic and had health complications.
The investigation indicates that, for more than two years, the priest would have sexually abused the minor.
The assaults were committed in the parish house and after each act he gave money to the victim so that he would not report.
The parents of the teenager discovered the WhatsApp talks, where the priest, they said, asked for naked pictures of his son.
