A church spokesman said Monday that the two departments in which the five employees worked have been restructured to add a direct supervisor above them.

Former Victory employee Chris Denman was arrested Sept. 5 on a complaint alleging that he raped the 13-year-old girl and molested a 15-year-old girl. Prosecutors also charged the 20-year-old with making a lewd proposal to a child and using a computer to commit a sex crime involving a 12-year-old girl.

Denman has pleaded not guilty to the charges involving the two older girls, but has yet to enter a plea for the other charge. He remained jailed Monday on $200,000 bond and is due in court Thursday for a preliminary hearing.

The other former church employee, 23-year-old Israel Castillo, is charged with making a lewd proposal to a 15-year-old girl and using a computer to commit a sex crime. He posted bond and has pleaded not guilty.
