A woman came forward alleging that the Catholic priest who performed her confessions throughout her childhood had abused her sexually beginning when she was 8 and continuing over several years.
68-year-old Miguel Luna served as a priest in 12 Catholic churches throughout El Paso, Texas, since he was ordained in 1982. Although Luna has not served as a clergyman since his position was taken in 2013, he has been accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl who took confession from him for many years during the time that he was a priest.
A woman who is now 34-years-old came forward with the claim in 2016 and named Luna as her abuser when she reported that she had been victimized as a child while she was attending the Catholic Church that Luna was serving. The woman also was said to have acted as an altar person during masses during the time that she was a young parishioner.
