Alfred Hernandez worked as a chaplain at several juvenile detention facilities and served as an associate pastor at numerous parishes, including St. Anne (Santa Monica), St. Camillus (L.A.), St. Joseph (La Puente), Resurrection (East LA) and San Antonio de Padua (L.A.). Shortly after his death in 2014, Hernandez was accused in a civil lawsuit of repeatedly sexually abusing a 6-year-old boy, who was first grader at his parish school, in 1993.  Hernandez was the pastor of St. Ignatius in Highland Park at the time. The suit claimed that Hernandez made the young boy read bible passages while Hernandez would sodomize him.
