Man alleges abuse by Bridgeport priest

March 04, 2010

A 30-year-old Connecticut man has alleged that he was abused by Father John Castaldo, a former priest of the Diocese of Bridgeport, between 1989 and 1992.

In 2001, the priest pled guilty to attempted dissemination of indecent material to a minor and received a jail sentence of one weekend. Four years later, the diocese reached a settlement with another alleged victim.
