Parents of a teenaged girl in Allentown, Pennsylvania sued a Catholic Priest for getting her pregnant and they have proof he's the father. They secretly videotaped Rev. Luis A. Bonilla Margarito having sex with their 18-year-old in the basement of their home. The parents say they became suspicious and installed a camera because Margarito and their daughter were spending lots of time in the basement together. He was the chaplain of Reading Central Catholic High School and she was a senior there. The diocese removed him from his duties when the parents brought the tape to church leaders. He was placed in treatment but the parents contend he continued having sex with their daughter, who gave birth to a girl. They are seeking punitive damages from the priest, the diocese, the school, the current Bishop and former Bishop.
