A catholic priest was recently arrested for soliciting for sex in the US. 40-year-old Dominic Yamoah didn’t realise he was talking to an undercover police agent when he tried to pay for sex on Saturday morning, July 9.
Yamoah who was a priest at the Saint Clare parish in Clarinda and the St.Joseph Parish in Villisca, was arrested and taken to the Fremont County law enforcement center in California, USA.
According to a press release from the police department, here’s what led to his arrest: “investigation into the solicitation of prostitution in Hamburg, resulted in the arrest early this (Saturday) morning, of a man from Page County and this man is Rev. Dominic Yamoah, 40 years old.
