There are allegations of him trying to get teenage boys drunk, watching pornographic movies with them and offering them money and cellular telephones in exchange for sexual acts.
Credit Father Adam Lee Ortega y Ortiz and the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for talking with me about this today when I found out. Openness on this is not what the Catholic church has always been known for, but they aren’t shying away from this. Martinez did go through all the background checks and has no criminal record of note prior to these allegations. They could have no commented this when i started digging this morning, but did not.
Check Thursday’s New Mexican for more on the story I’m working on about this.
