A St. James Catholic Church priest accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with an underage girl will face three felonies and one misdemeanor charge when he makes his first appearance this week in Yolo Superior Court.

The criminal complaint filed Friday by the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office charges Hector Coria Gonzalez with three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and one count of oral copulation with a person under age 18.

According to the three-page complaint, the intercourse occurred between September 2013 and May of this year in locations including a house, a vehicle and a church rectory, while the oral copulation took place between April 2013 and May in a location that was not disclosed.

Coria, 45, is scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in Commissioner Janene Beronio’s courtroom.

Davis police arrested Coria on May 9 following an investigation that began earlier that month. Police said at the time that Coria had befriended the 17-year-old girl late last year while serving at the B Street church, which he had joined in 2012.

He has been free on bail since shortly after his arrest.

The Sacramento Diocese of the Catholic Church placed Coria on administrative leave following his arrest, and the Rev. Peter Bosque, St. James’ pastor, told The Enterprise that Coria would not return to the parish even if cleared of the allegations against him.
