The Rev. Robert Freitas allegedly admitted he had orally copulated his accuser.

A Roman Catholic priest accused of molesting a Fremont teenager in 1979 was arrested after confessing the crime in a conversation that the purported victim secretly recorded for police, according to court records.

During that conversation, the Rev. Robert Freitas said that there were more victims and that he had been in therapy for more than five years "and got myself together," documents state.

The 37-year-old man, who was 15 at the time of the alleged molestations, secretly recorded the conversation for investigators during a March meeting with Freitas at a Fremont coffee house, police said.

The tape corroborates the man's account of the alleged crimes 22 years ago, said Fremont Police Sgt. Bill Veteran. That led to Freitas' arrest Monday night at his home at St. Alphonsus Liguori Church in San Leandro
