Priest charged after impregnating teen

National / World

An Ohio Catholic priest is facing allegations of sexual abuse of a minor after allegedly impregnating a teenage alter girl.

Reverend Christopher Foxhoven appeared in Athens Municipal Court Tuesday afternoon to face eight counts of sexual battery.

According to court records, Foxhoven admitted to having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, who is now pregnant with his child. Foxhoven was serving two churches in Athens County, including Holy Cross in Glouster, where the relationship allegedly took place.

Diocese of Steubenville officials say they notified the Athens County Sheriff as soon as they learned that Foxhoven had admitted to having a sexual relationship with a minor.
