Former Portales school resource officer Victor Castillo, 46, was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to maintaining a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old Portales High School student, the Portales News-Tribune reported.

Castillo pleaded guilty in March to 17 of 34 charges, including sexual exploitation of a minor, criminal sexual contact of a minor, criminal sexual penetration of a minor and tampering with evidence, the News-Tribune said.

District Attorney Matt Chandler told state District Judge Donna Mowrer that State Police launched an investigation of Castillo after learning of a party at Castillo’s home northwest of Clovis, which involved sexual activity of minors, the paper reported.

Castillo’s cell phone was confiscated and sent to a forensic lab in Albuquerque where 10,000 deleted photos and three videos were recovered from the phone, including more than a dozen sexually explicit pictures, Chandler told the judge.

Chandler said the victim admitted to police that she had sent Castillo sexually explicit photos and videos, according to the News-Tribune.

Oh this is priceless. This guy gets 25 years for having a sexual relationship with a 16 year old, not a 6 year old,; she sends him 10,000 photos and sexually explicit photos. What did she get? The whole world cuddles her, tells here she is a victim, "we" will get her years of counseling because she is now totally damaged, talk shows, victim-witness monies, lots of shoulders to allow her to feel VICTIMIZED, while this guy rots in prison for 25 years??? what the $&*(%$* is going on here?????? Oh yes, and the D.A.in this case will go out and celebrate with cocktails at the local watering hole and get the praises of his pals. And if any of think this is a bunch of baloney I just wrote, I just ran away from the legal system after 18+ years in this toilet of filth, corruption - the most diabolical politics that makes Congress look like choir boys, the back slapping, and the "old boy network," and yes, the watering holes where these D.A.'s and lawyers go to lift the liquids and brag how good they are professionally. with each other, not to mention the bed hopping was like a frog jumping race. I rest my case.. I wish I could assist this guy Victor.

I kept reading through the article to find out how he killed her. It seems a mite bit harsh to give this guy a life sentence for what is indisputably an inappropriate relationship with a minor. It must have been the DA's daughter!
