May 12, 2014
A Davis Catholic priest was arrested for having sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, the Davis Police Department said.
Rev. Hector Coria, 45, was taken into custody by police after officers served search warrants at multiple locations Friday, police said.
The police department started investigating Coria after they got reports of the sexual abuse in early May. During the investigation, police found that Coria befriended the 17-year-old girl while he was a priest at St. James Parish in late 2013 and began a sexual relationship with the teen, police said.
Coria was booked into Yolo County jail for statutory rape and oral copulation with a minor.
