ALLENTOWN, Pa.A Pennsylvania couple secretly videotaped a Roman Catholic priest having sex with their teenage daughter in the basement of their home and are now suing, saying he got her pregnant.

The lawsuit alleges that the Rev. Luis A. Bonilla Margarito carried on a sexual relationship with a teenage girl while he was the chaplain of Reading Central Catholic High School and she was a senior there.

The girl's parents became suspicious and installed a camera in their basement. The lawsuit says the camera recorded the couple having sex in November 2009. The Diocese of Allentown removed Bonilla from his post after he acknowledged an "inappropriate relationship."

The girl later gave birth to a daughter.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Berks County Court. It names Bonilla, the diocese, the high school and the current and former bishop as defendants.
