Rape charge against priest

Osnabrueck prosecution spokesman Alexander Retemeyer said on Tuesday the 50-year-old man, then a chaplain, used force to coerce the girl into having sex with him and also threatened her with punishment by God.

Prosecutors say the priest, who has been relieved of his duties by the church, has admitted sexual contacts with the girl.

The complainant said she had a sexual relationship marked by violence with the chaplain over three years.
