SA priest charged with indecent exposure

Police: Rev. Alberto Torres Trevino, 63, exposed himself to undercover officer

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police said the Rev. Alberto Torres Trevino, 63, is being held in the Bexar County Jail on indecent exposure charges.

Trevino was arrested just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday at Olmos Park.

Investigators said undercover officers with the San Antonio Parks Police noticed Trevino sitting on a park bench touching his genitals.

The undercover officer said he spoke with Trevino and Trevino began to pleasure himself.

Officers arrested him on the spot.

KSAT has confirmed Trevino is a priest at the local chapter of Missionaries of the Holy Family (MHF).

Higher priests from the MHF organization say Trevino is a Formation Director -- the person who helps prepare anyone who want to become a priest or brother.

Thursday afternoon, the MHF released a statement that reads in part: "We want the faithful of the San Antonio Archdiocese to know that we continue to do everything possible to ensure a safe environment and that the Archdiocese of San Antonio and the Missionaries of the Holy Family are in full compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People."

Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor charge.
