Victor Salazar, Counselor Who Molested 3 Boys at Children's Home, Gets 4.5 Years in Prison
At sentencing, statements were read to the judge on behalf of two victims, one saying his life had forever changed because of Salazar and the other complaining of nightmares and seeing the predator's face on the face of others.
The second boy noted he fled his country of origin due to violence and abuse, seeking a better life in the United States. But after being placed at Florence Crittenton Home, which houses children living here without parents because the elders were deported or the child entered the country alone, the only way he could speak to his family was on the phone in Salazar's office.
Between May 25, 2007, and Feb. 5, 2008, Salazar molested three boys between the ages of 15 and 16 and from South or Central America. While the boys were on the phone in his office, Salazar put his hands down their pants and fondled their penises.
