Michael Rehm’s law firm provides information on criminal charges against Sacramento priest Roberto Jaramillo for child sexual abuse.

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 27, 2022 / — Roberto Jaramillo, a priest who was active in the Sacramento metro area from 1995 to 2005, was the subject of criminal charges filed in Sacramento County, Case No. 22FE014351, and a warrant for felony warrant issued by the Sacramento Police Department for charges stemming from child sexual abuse. According to reports, he is accused of sexually abusing and raping a girl between 1996 and 1999.

Father Jaramillo was a priest in the following local churches:

— Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, located at 711 T Street Sacramento, CA 95811, from 1995 to 1998
— St. Rose Parish in Roseville, located at 615 Vine Avenue, from 1998 to 2002
— St. Rose Parish located at 5961 Franklin Blvd Sacramento, CA 95824; and Immaculate Conception Church, in Oak Park, located at 3263 1st Avenue Sacramento, CA 95817 from 2002 to 2005

According to reports, after his stay in Sacramento, he was sent to the Atlanta area and served as a priest there before returning to his home diocese in Colombia.

Reportedly, he was accused of kissing a boy in 1999, and this accusation was reported to the diocese and law enforcement, with no action taken. The Diocese of Sacramento added his name to the list of accused clergy that can be found on their website.

As the California Supreme Court stated in the decision of Brown vs. USA Taekwondo, the diocese maintains a “special relationship” with the children in its care, and this “special relationship” imposes the duty to protect the child against abuse by third parties (Jaramillo). In other words, the diocese is responsible for the failure to protect the child against sexual abuse.
