Mexican priest to stand trial in 1990s sex abuse

Daily Mail (UK)


MEXICO CITY (AP) — Prosecutors in Mexico City say a judge has ordered a priest to stand trial on charges he sexually abused a boy in the 1990s.

Carlos Lopez Valdez allegedly abused the boy between 1994 and 1998, although the criminal complaint against him wasn’t filed until 2007.

Lopez Valdez was stripped of priestly duties by the Roman Catholic Church in 2010.

He was arrested recently in a town south of Mexico City.
