Louisiana priest, 37, pleads guilty to obscenity charge after he filmed himself having a threesome with two dominatrices on church altar

  • Travis Clark, 39, a former Catholic priest in Louisiana, pleaded guilty on Monday to an obscenity charge after he was caught having a threesome 
  • Clark was arrested in September 2020 along with two dominatrices after he was filmed having sex on St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church’s alter in Pearl River 
  • The former priest received suspended jail time and was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine  
  • Mindy Dixon and Melissa Cheng were also arrested and sentenced to two years of probation earlier this year 

A former priest plead guilty to an obscenity charge after he was filmed having a threesome with two dominatrices on the altar of a Louisiana church.

Travis Clark, 39, appeared at the Covington courthouse on Monday in front of Judge Ellen Creel and pleaded guilty. Clark was sentenced to three years in prison, but Creel decided to suspend his time in jail and instead punished him with three years of probation and a $1,000 fine.

Clark was busted in an unholy trinity with Mindy Dixon and Melissa Cheng on September 30, 2020. The trio was caught on the alter inside St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Pearl River with a stage light, sex toys and a cell phone on the tripod.

‘I plead guilty your honor,’ Clark said on Monday.

Dixon and Cheng were also arrested in September 2020 and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in July. The two were sentenced to two years of probation.

It’s unclear if the video was ever released, but Clark is set to appear back in court on January 20 to ensure the trio will never gain profit from the act, according to NOLA.com.

Clark was caught in the unholy act more than two years ago when a passerby noticed lights on in the Pearl River church – and when he peered in through the window, he was stunned at what he saw.

The witness saw the priest was stripped down on the altar and engaging in sex acts with the corseted women in high-heeled boots, according to prosecutors. The witness also said Clark appeared to be recording the act. 

Both women told officers who arrived at the scene that they were filming ‘roleplay’ with Clark. 

All three were then arrested on obscenity charges because they were in view of the public. 

Dixon had bragged about her plans with Clark the day before traveling to New Orleans, writing on social media that she planned to ‘defile a house of God’ with another dominatrix.

A lawyer for the two dominatrices said that they had been hired for ‘role-play’ and were performing consensual acts when they were arrested on the night of September 30, 2020.

About a week after the crime in 2020, the Archbishop of New Orleans consecrated a new altar at the church after its predecessor was burned following Clark’s ‘demonic’ behavior. 

Archbishop Gregory Aymond accused Clark of being ‘unfaithful to his vocation’ and violating ‘his commitment to celibacy and also he was using that which was holy to do demonic things.’

While condemning Clark’s alleged sexual exploits, Aymond asked the congregation not to judge the church or priesthood as a whole by Clark’s actions.

The Archbishop continued by reiterating the church is a holy place, and said that when it is used for unholy things ‘and has been desecrated, we must drive away the evil spirit, That is what we do today.’
