Female Chaplain Filed Rape Charges against Priest; Later Confessed She Had an Affair with the Priest

The Catholic Culture website reports today (February 14, 2011) that a female Catholic chaplain at John Henry Newman College in Birmingham, England has confessed that she fabricated a rape charge against a priest with whom she had worked on an earlier assignment.

Father Patrick Udoma had been ousted from his post as pastor in Birmingham after Emma Templeton filed rape charges.

But police discovered dozens of text messages on her cell phone that supported the priest's defense: They had a short, consensual affair.

A court sentenced Templeton to 10 months in prison for filing the false charge, but suspended the sentence.
