Castillo and Chris Denman, 19, who was arrested on rape and molestation charges two weeks ago, did janitorial work on the Victory Christian campus. 

Denman pleaded not guilty at a court appearance last week.

The scandal stems from allegations of a 13-year-old girl who said she was raped by a man who worked at Victory. According to police, the girl told school employees about the rape, but they were determined to have waited two weeks to report the claim.
