Convicted sex offender faces new assault charges


A repeat sex offender went before a judge Thursday, facing additional charges related to a history of sexual harassment.

Miguel Castillo was arraigned on several charges of lewd acts with a child.

Court documents say the alleged victim accused Castillo of fondling and forcing himself on her from the time she was 8 years old, including an instance where he locked her in his bedroom on her birthday.

Castillo had already been convicted of sex crimes in 2001 and found himself in court again for failing to register in 2012.
