Summary
Fragmentary criminal proceedings against Francisco Xavier Romero of Santa Cruz for sodomy. Mmss begins and ends incomplete. Charges initially brought against Romero by Miguel Martin whose 15 year-old son was homosexually molested by accussed. The Boy, Juan Pablo, seems to have been mentally affected by the incident. Testimonies by Romero's legitimate wife and many others seem to verify his lewd conduct. Romero's generosity to the church, other extra marital relations and charge for like crime against Antonio de Sandoval punctuate mmss. No sentence or final decision. (Raul Saba) (1980)
