ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A former Catholic priest accused of raping a young girl has been released from custody.


During a hearing Monday, a detective who interviewed the alleged victim and Griego, said the former priest said he was the actual victim.

"He mentioned that while a director of Queen of Heaven, he did have male companions enter through his window and they would force him to sleep with him," detective Jacob Trujillo said.

Despite the testimony, Judge Charles Brown released Sabine Griego from custody on his own recognizance.

Under his conditions of release, Griego will not be allowed to be alone with anyone under the age of 18. He also can not have any unsupervised time with anyone under the age of 18.

The 81-year-old is accused of violently sexually assaulting a student at Queen of Heaven Catholic School in Albuquerque multiple times during the late 80s and early 90s.
