A priest arrested in July on sexual assault charges has pleaded no contest to three sex-related charges involving a 17 year-old girl and two women.

Luis Jose Cuevas, 68, was arrested in July at a home in San Jacinto, according to the Long Beach Post. Before his arrest, he had been living on the grounds of St. Athanasius Catholic Church in Long Beach, the paper reported.

He has reportedly entered his plea Tuesday. He was facing one felony count of committing a lewd act on a child and two misdemeanor sexual battery charges.
