CHINA CAMP STATE PARK, Calif. (AP) - A priest has been arrested after authorities say he exposed himself to an undercover agent at China Camp State Park.
The Marin Independent Journal reports that 58-year-old Rev. Feliciano Mofan was being held in jail on Friday in lieu of $2,500 bail.
Supervising Ranger Ryen Goering said Mofan's arrest happened during a sting caused by an increase in reports of sexual activity.
Goering said Mofan propositioned the undercover ranger and exposed himself.
Mofan is a "priest in residence" at the Church of St. Isabella, part of the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
The archdiocese said the church is not aware of any previous illegal behavior by Mofan.
Mofan, who does not teach at parish schools, has been placed on a leave of absence.
