Carlos Mendoza – Repeat Sex Offender – Molested 5 year old in Church Restroom

The congregation of a Roman Catholic church in Farmer’s Branch is reeling from the revelation that a sexual predator assaulted two or their youngest members – eight years apart.

According to police a five-year old girl at Mary Immaculate Church became a victim during Sunday mass on August 3.

After an official investigation, Carlos Mendoza was arrested. The 57-year-old is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Church pastor Rev. Michael Forge says Mendoza sexually assaulted the girl in the bathroom… while communion was taking place in the sanctuary.

“It’s a contrast between good and evil – it simply is,” Father Forge explained. “When you think about what he did and how he did it, it’s very much a dark image, a satanic image.”

Church officials say Mendoza was not a member of the church, but some members recall having seen him at the church before.

Delia Davila saved the sex offender notification she received about Mendoza a few months ago. The woman, who lives two houses away from the address listed for Mendoza, says she has known his family for years.

According to Davila, Mendoza stays at a house with his brother. “I don’t ever see his car,” she explained. “I only see him when he’s out there doing the yard.”

After the alleged assault at Mary Immaculate Church, a Farmer’s Branch investigator remembered a similar case at the same church from eight years ago. He contacted that victim, who is now 16-years-old, and she identified Mendoza as her attacker.

Mendoza became a registered sex offender after Garland police arrested him in 2003 for grabbing a little girl in the bathroom of a Mervyn’s store. That little girl got away and workers at the store got the license plate of the suspect – it traced back to Mendoza. In that case Mendoza was charged with detaining a person under the age of 17 and was given probation.

Mendoza, who is in jail on $100,000 bond, faces two counts aggravated sexual assault.

Richard Dillard – Repeat Sex Offender – Habitual Pervert

“He is a continuing menace to young children
because he cannot control his behavior.”


A registered sex offender was sent to state prison yesterday for the sexual assault of several young girls in the township.

Richard Dillard, 41, was sentenced to 10 years in prison by Superior Court Judge James J. Morley. In May, the township man pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

“This is a tragic and troubling case,” the judge said “He is a continuing menace to young children because he cannot control his behavior.”

Dillard was charged in 2006 with the sexual assault of five young girls from 1996 to 2000. They ranged in age from 3 to 9, authorities said.

Police launched an investigation after the girls told their mothers of the assaults. Dillard had befriended the girls’ families and lived with them when the assaults took place, authorities said.

Morley said Dillard has a history of similar offenses involving children. In 2002, he was required to register with the state as a sex offender after a conviction for endangering the welfare of a child.

He was classified as a Tier 2 offender, meaning he had a moderate
likelihood of committing another offense.

Dillard must now serve 8 years before being eligible for parole. He will serve his time at the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center, a state prison that offers treatment for sex offenders.

When he is paroled, he will again have to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law and will be under community supervision for life.
