The Diocese of Sacramento today expanded its list of clergy members credibly accused of child sex abuse, adding the name of a priest who served in Sacramento and Roseville between 1995 and 2005.
Roberto Jaramillo, 70, has been accused of the repeated sexual abuse and rape of a girl between 1996 and 1999. Jaramillo left the Diocese of Sacramento in 2005 and served in the Archdiocese of Atlanta before returning to his home diocese in Colombia in 2008.
Jaramillo is the subject of a felony arrest warrant for his crimes. The Diocese is cooperating with investigators and asks anyone with information about Jaramillo – in particular, with information related to possible additional victims – to contact Detective Matthew Wollman of the Sacramento Police Department at (916) 808-1223.
