The Archdiocese of Oklahoma City said Tuesday that it has substantiated allegations of child sexual abuse against another priest.
The archdiocese said in a news release that allegations of abuse of a minor were substantiated against Father Marvin Leven by the archdiocese following an investigation by the Oklahoma City law firm McAfee & Taft. It said the allegations date to 1993, when Leven, now 94 and retired, was assigned to Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Enid.
The allegation was made by a then-15-year-old boy, who said the abuse resumed later when he was an adult at Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church in Edmond, the archdiocese said.
The archdiocese said it also substantiated a separate allegation against Leven of inappropriate behavior with a minor at the Enid church.
