The Orange County Child Molestation Lawyers at Wallin & Klarich have learned that a former Orange County priest has plead guilty to charges of molesting a 7 year-old boy at a Costa Mesa church in 1994.

Denis Lyons, 78, of Seal Beach, admitted to four felony counts of lewd conduct with a child younger than 14 in a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Lyons’ alleged victim says he was molested in 1994 and 1995 when he was in third grade at St. John the Baptist Catholic School.

Lyons was removed from the church in 2002 after admitting that he had inappropriate sexual relations with adults in 1993. He was also charged with molesting a boy in 1978, but the case was dropped because of a Supreme Court ruling that stopped the prosecution based upon the statue of limitations.
