A plea agreement has been filed in the case against a local priest who is facing several sex crime charges after documents say he assaulted two teens earlier this year.

ABC21 reported that David Huneck had served as a pastor in Columbia City and as a chaplain at Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne before stepping down. He was then charged with child seduction, sexual battery, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, furnishing alcohol to a minor, and two counts of battery.

Court documents released in the case accuse Huneck of inviting two victims, then aged 17 and 19, to his home and giving them alcohol before assaulting them on two different occasions.

Online court records show that a plea agreement was filed in the case last week. Prosecutors were not able to disclose the details of the agreement. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Investigators say Father David Huneck groped two women inside the home provided to him by the church(WPTA)
