A 32-year-old man who had been charged with sexually assaulting a child was allowed to entertain children at a public library’s Drag Queen storytime event.

Houston Public Library issued an apology for not completing a background check before allowing Albert Alfonso Garza to dress in drag and entertain children.

On Friday the library issued a statement saying: “In our review of our process and of this participant, we discovered that we failed to complete a background check as required by our own guidelines. We deeply regret this oversight and the concern this may cause our customers. We realize this is a serious matter.”

In October a lawsuit was filed against the library and Mayor Sylvester Turner, claiming the Drag Queen storytime event is unconstitutional, as it is the state favoring “secular humanism,” in violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause on religion.

A judge dismissed the lawsuit earlier this year.
