Bishop Jailed for Molestation and Selling Drugs from Church
#4
This from PE.com:

Garduno, a defrocked Roman Catholic priest, has a controversial past.

In 1993, while associate pastor of St. Edward's Church in Corona, he was accused of asking a man to strip during a pre-marriage counseling session. Garduno left that church in late 1993.

John Andrews, director of communications for the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Bernardino, said Garduno was put on trial for schism and heresy for forming his own church and was dismissed from the clerical state.

Garduno, who has repeatedly denied any sexual misconduct, did not attend the trial.

Andrews said Our Lady of Tepeyac is now associated with the Old Catholic Church -- a movement that began in 1870 when some European Roman Catholic parishes split from the Roman Catholic Church and rejected the First Vatican Council's declaration that the pope is infallible in matters of faith.
