Marina High School track & field coach arrested for sex abuse

High School volunteer track and field coach and Marine recruiter Gonzalo Castro of San Clemente has been arrested after a then-17-year-old student’s allegations of sexual abuse during an off-campus training run.

As sexual molestation of students (or any children) is learned behavior, it is not likely to catch a pedophile such as Castro early-on in his ‘molestation career’. It’s expected and likely that law enforcement will find child victims beyond the one who initially reported.
