South Florida HIV/AIDS Organization, Broward House, Replaces CEO After Child Molestation Allegations
After pressure continued to mount from children’s advocates and funders, the CEO of Broward House, Michael McGuigan, resigned last week. Allegations of sexual abuse and improper advances toward children have followed him for years. No charges though have ever been brought.
However, his adopted son was taken from him just this past summer amid a sex abuse investigation involving a foster child, The Miami Herald reports.
Two months ago in September former CEO Angelo Castillo left the organization. Michael McGuigan replaced him despite his history of child molestation allegations. Now Castillo is refusing to answer questions.
The Miami Herald also reports that Broward House’s board knew of some of the allegations surrounding McGuigan two years ago - before he was even promoted to vice president.
"I have no comment on it whatsoever," Castillo told the Herald. "It has nothing to do with me." He then suggested to the Herald that McGuigan did nothing wrong.
"Has he been convicted of anything?" he asked a reporter.
