Santa Rosa — A handwritten diary taken from a priest accused of molesting 20 Northern California boys at a Catholic school and summer camp in the 1970s includes an entry saying, "I am a child molester," according to court papers.

In addition, the documents disclose that investigators searching the Rev. Gary Timmons' Chicago apartment found notes describing his sexual encounters and a letter to one of his victims.

The diary entry, along with 172 pages of notes, was in a law enforcement summary included in court papers.

Timmons, 54, was arrested 10 days ago in Chicago and faces 17 felony counts involving two men who say he sexually abused them when they were children. At least 18 other men have made similar accusations.

Timmons, who spent 25 years in schools and parishes from Rohnert Park to Eureka, faces up to 136 years in prison if convicted of all counts.

Timmons waived extradition from Illinois and is expected to arrive in Santa Rosa today or tomorrow. He could appear in court as early as Tuesday.
