Child sex abuse substantiated against ex-Oklahoma priest


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Archdiocese of Oklahoma City says it substantiated an allegation of child sexual abuse against another priest.

The archdiocese said Tuesday that the allegation of abuse of a minor was leveled against Father Marvin Leven.

The archdiocese says in a news release that the allegation dates to 1993 when the now 94-year-old Leven was assigned to Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Enid.

Archbishop Paul Coakley has revoked the retired Leven’s authority to serve as a priest.

Leven didn’t immediately reply to a message seeking comment left with the archdiocese.
