A priest visiting from Colombia has been arrested in Yuba City on charges of sexual battery and molestation of a minor.
Rev. Julio Cesar Guarin-Sosa, 43, was ministering at St. Anne’s Parish in Lodi. He had provided a letter of good standing from his Colombian diocese.
According to the Sutter County Sheriff’s website, Guarin-Sosa was arrested on Sunday.
Guarin-Sosa’s permission to minister has now been revoked, the Diocese of Stockton notes in a release.
The diocese expects Guarin-Sosa to be arraigned in court Tuesday.
