Lawton Priest Convicted of Sex Crimes
April 27, 2016
A Lawton Catholic priest who previously plead guilty to sexual battery, has now been removed from his post.
Father Jose Alexis Davila was convicted of his crime in 2012 while working in San Diego.
New reports claim he arrived in Lawton in December of 2015 having been deemed "fit to minister."
Archbishop Paul Coakley says "new information" about the allegations against Davila led to his removal from Blessed Sacrament and Saint Mary's Catholic School.
We'll have more information as it becomes available.
