A former Racine man was in Racine County Court Monday after he evaded police for 23 years on a child sexual assault case that happened in Racine over 26 years ago.

Alvino Castillo, 55, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with 2nd-degree sexual assault of a child in 1995 for having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

If convicted of the charge, Castillo faces up to 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $10,000.

According to the criminal complaint, a former girlfriend of Castillo’s reported to police that Castillo had had sex with her 14-year-old daughter.

The girl told police in 1995 that Castillo had sex with her about 10 times starting in the fall of 1992 until spring of 1993. The investigator asked the girl’s mother if she had ever confronted Castillo.

“She indicates the defendant did not admit to having sexual contact, but he did not deny it either, at which point she threw him out of the home,” she told police.

Racine County Court Commissioner set a $50,000 cash bond and a preliminary hearing for 8:30 a.m. March 13 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center.
