A former priest at a Midland church has been indicted on child sex abuse charges.

The Rev. Domingo Gonzales Estrada was arrested Friday after being indicted by a Midland County grand jury. The 61-year-old is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and three counts of indecency with a child by contact.

The indictment alleges sexual acts on a boy occurring during four consecutive days in June 1990.

His attorney, Tom Morgan, said Estrada will plead not guilty.

"He looks forward to trial and getting this matter behind him," Morgan said.

Estrada, who worked at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church from 1986-1996, is a member of the religious order of Oblates of Mary Immaculate and not a member of the San Angelo Diocese, Bishop Michael Pfeifer said.

Pfeifer said he had not received reports of any such allegations when Estrada was working within the diocese.

"I didn't hear any reports of this nature," Pfeifer told the Midland Reporter-Telegram. "If I'd known about it, I'd have taken immediate action."

Pfeifer said Estrada lives in San Antonio. Records show Estrada secured a $50,000 bond after his arrest.
