New sentencing date set for Davis priest

By From page A2 | July 10, 2014

A new sentencing date has been set for Hector Coria Gonzalez, the St. James Catholic Church priest who pleaded guilty last month to having an unlawful sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

Coria’s defense attorney, Linda Parisi, was going to be unavailable for the original sentencing date of Aug. 8, prompting the parties to return to Yolo Superior Court on Wednesday for setting of a new date, according to the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office.

The 45-year-old defendant admitted guilt to the felony charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor on June 27 in a plea agreement that calls for him to serve three years of probation and 90 days in jail, as well as undergo counseling.

Coria also must stay away from the teenage girl, who has said the relationship was consensual, until she turns 18.
