DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest has been charged with three felonies for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a teenage girl he met while working at a Davis church.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1kUfo7U) that Yolo County prosecutors released a criminal complaint on Friday that charges the Rev. Hector Coria Gonzales with three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.

According to the complaint, the charges stem from encounters between the 46-year-old Coria and a 17-year-old girl that took place at a home, in a vehicle and at the church rectory over eight months.

Coria has been a staff pastor at St. James Parish in Davis for almost two years. After his arrest in May, Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento put him on leave.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
