Father Christopher Foxhoven, a pastor at Holy Cross and St. Mary of the Hill parishes in the Diocese of Steubenville, has been charged after it was discovered that he had a sexual relationship with a teenage girl.
The 17-year-old Ohio girl was reportedly an altar girl at the church. It was revealed that she was pregnant when both her and the priest told the girl’s parents. The relationship between the two happened over the course of 3 years, with many of their sexual meetings occurring on church property.
Foxhoven has since been removed from ministry and charged with eight counts of sexual battery.
