Sexual Abuse Arrest Made

The Davis Police Department began to investigate allegations into the sexual abuse of a 17 year old female earlier this month. During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the suspect, Fr. Hector Coria, a 45 year old male, had befriended the minor while he was a priest with a Catholic Church. In late 2013, Fr. Coria began a sexual relationship with the minor and engaged in that sexual relationship on multiple occasions since 2013.

On May 9, the Davis Police Department served search warrants at multiple locations and subsequently arrested Fr. Coria on charges of statutory rape and oral copulation with a minor. Fr. Coria was booked into the Yolo County Jail.
