MEXICO CITY (AP) - The Roman Catholic Church in Mexico has suspended a priest from the ministry after sexual abuse allegations against him were made public on a billboard.

The president of the Catholic Lawyers College of Mexico says Eduardo Cordova was stripped of his priesthood by the Vatican following an investigation of the allegations.

Armando Martinez Gomez said Tuesday that all the evidence has been forwarded to Mexican prosecutors.

Parents in the central state of San Luis Potosi complained in 2012 that their 16-year-old son had been sexually abused by Cordova. Activists posted a photo of Cordova on a billboard in San Luis Potosi with the slogan "Were you a victim? Report him."

Martinez Gomez said an apparently similar complaint against Cordova had been received in 1998 but had not been proved.
