‘DepEd man no
stranger to charges’


The arrest and filing of charges against a DepEd District Supervisor assigned in Cadiz City did not come as a surprise to Cadiznons because of numerous other cases he has been facing in the city, Negros Occidental Board Member Salvador Escalante, former Cadiz City Mayor, said yesterday.

On June 5 the police filed charges for illegal drug use and violation of Republic Act 7610, or child abuse, before the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office against Joshua Santillana, 55, who has since been released on bail.

Two male teenagers, both 16, whose names are being withheld, were rescued from the “drug den” after the father of one of them claimed that Santillana was inducing the minors to take drugs, hiring commercial sex workers for them, and sexually molesting them.moremoremore
