Oregon Priest Sentenced To 6 Years For Sexually Abusing 12 Year Old

A former catholic priest in Oregon was sentenced to over six years in prison on Monday after pleading guilty to multiple charges of sexual abuse on a 12-year old boy.

Angel Armando Perez, 46, plead guilty to first degree sexual abuse, driving under the influence of intoxicants, and furnishing alcohol to a person under 21 years of age.

Perez was arrested last August after allegations emerged that he sexually abused the 12-year-old boy from Salem following a church party.

After the boy escaped the house, Perez reportedly chased him down the street and then drove to the home of the boy's family where he pleaded to be forgiven.

Perez will serve six years and three months in prison and is now the third priest to be convicted of criminal sex abuse charges in the state.
