An Ohio priest has reportedly admitted to a “sexual relationship” with a now-pregnant underage teen altar girl at his church.
The diocese immediately suspended Foxhoven from practicing all religious services and barred him from church property.Investigators executed a search warrant of Foxhoven’s home and found several used condoms and a used pregnancy test with a positive indication…
The state requested a $1 million bond.
Foxhoven is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 29.
To be clear, this was not a sexual “relationship” by any stretch. It was abuse perpetrated by a religious figure in a position of authority over a young altar girl. If the details are accurate, this was a crime.
At least the church recognized the inappropriate situation and reported him to the police. There was no cover up. There was no moving the priest somewhere else. Church officials did exactly what they should’ve done, at least assuming they had no indication of what was going on beforehand. This is how it should always go.
