Flores pleaded guilty in 2010 to felony criminal sexual abuse. He served about 80 percent of his four-year prison sentence. Flores now must register as a sex offender.

Flores attempted suicide in January 2010 by leaping from the balcony of a Joliet church after his relationship with the then-13-year-old boy from St. Mary's Church in West Chicago came under investigation. The victim's mother contacted police after her live-in boyfriend caught Flores and the boy in a "suspicious position" at her home in St. Charles.
