But not anymore, not since his arrest 4 years ago, on charges he was molesting young school girls.

Now more than 4  years later, the court has determined there is enough evidence to proceed with a trial.

Charges include seven counts of  lewd acts on a child under 14.

Next court date is June 11th 2024.

Moncada posted a 1-hundred-thousand dollar bond and is a free man right now.
