Priests says it was consensual sex

Sun Star

A MEMBER of the local clergy here finally came out in the open last week to deny the rape charges leveled against him by a 29-year-old woman.

Fr. James Lloren said he had a 'consensual sex' with his accuser, a certain Jane (true name withheld).

A local tabloid earlier reported that a local priest here has impregnated a certain Neneng.

It was not clear if the same Lloren was the same priest named in the news item.

On Friday, however, Fr. Lloren spoke before a local radio station to deny that a rape incident occurred between him and Jane.

The woman claimed he was sweet-talked by the priest into accompanying the later into a motel where the alleged rape took place.

The woman further said she was threatened and overpowered by the priest who allegedly succeeded in sexually molesting her.

The priest however said he would no longer issue any further statement and that he would answer the charges leveled against him in court.
