Davis Priest Arrested on Statutory Rape Charges
May 10, 2014
The Davis Police Department began to investigate allegations into the sexual abuse of a 17-year-old female earlier this month.
During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the suspect, Fr. Hector Coria, a 45-year-old male, had befriended the minor while he was a priest with a Catholic Church.
In late 2013, Fr. Coria began a sexual relationship with the minor and engaged in that sexual relationship on multiple occasions since 2013.
On May 9, the Davis Police Department served search warrants at multiple locations and subsequently arrested Fr. Coria on charges of statutory rape. Fr. Coria was booked into the Yolo County Jail.
