Priest allegedly fathered child of teenage girl

The Diocese of Allentown, Pa., was recently sued by a couple who said their daughter was seduced by a priest who was a chaplain at a Catholic high school.
According to a report in The Morning Call of Allentown:

"A Roman Catholic priest allegedly seduced a 17-year-old girl while she was a senior at a Catholic high school in Reading into a sexual relationship that resulted in her giving birth at age 19, according to a civil lawsuit filed by her parents in Berks County Court.

"According to the lawsuit, the Rev. Luis A. Bonilla Margarito was removed as chaplain of Reading Central Catholic High School and pastor of St. Joseph Church in Reading after the parents secretly video-taped him having sexual intercourse with their daughter in the basement of their home in November."
