SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Roman Catholic priest who served parishioners in Woodland and Redding has admitted to sexually molesting a teenage girl, according to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.

soto DA: Catholic Priest Admits To Molesting Teen Girl

Uriel Ojeda

A spokeswoman with the office said Thursday that Uriel Ojeda, 32, admitted to an investigator for the Sacramento Catholic Diocese that he repeatedly molested a teenage parishioner. Ojeda’s attorney, Jesse Ortiz, reportedly disputed that an admission was made.

Deputy District Attorney Allison Dunham presented that in Sacramento County Superior Court on Thursday in arguing that bail should remain high for Ojeda. Bail was reduced from $5 million to $700,000.

The next hearing is scheduled for Feb. 2.

Ojeda turned himself in to the Sacramento Police Department on Nov. 30.

      I agree with you that he is a sick man. Seeing how it seems that you know it all you failed to reply to the article that first reported that it was the church that assisted with the investigation that led to his arrest. Would it be fair for us to sue HP for the uninformed comments that you make from your computer.

    I KNEW IT! All you supporters are a bunch of IGNORANT IDIOTS! Just as I’ve stated before! & the reason he turned himself in is because the diocese got an admission by him of molesting that girl so NO SYMPATHY from the diocese for him! I applaud the diocese for what they did! This is what they should have done ALL ALONG IN THE PAST! Also, the reason this priest did not enter a plea when asked by the judge, as I’ve said before, is because he KNOWS HE IS NOT INNOCENT of what he is accused of doing to this kid!! SICK PERVERT SOB!
