Dominatrices To Testify Against New Orleans Priest

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports:

Two professional dominatrices accused of a sexual tryst with a priest on the altar of Pearl River Catholic church in 2020 have each pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge of institutional vandalism and won’t serve jail time, according to court records.

But Melissa Cheng and Mindy Dixon will have to come back to 22nd Judicial District court in St. Tammany Parish next year to testify for the prosecution when Travis Clark, who was then pastor of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, stands trial on felony charges of obscenity and institutional vandalism.

Cheng and Dixon, who had faced the same two felony charges, entered a plea agreement with the state on July 26 — the same day that they were issued summonses to appear as witnesses for the state in Clark’s Jan. 9 jury trial.

The Daily Mail reports:

Both women received suspended sentences and two years of supervised probation. They will avoid any jail time. Cheng lives in Atlanta and Dixon is based in Seattle, according to their online profiles.

The fallen holy man foresaw his alleged partners in crime turn against him and his lawyer filed a motion to split his criminal case from theirs, saying that he believed that they intended “to exculpate themselves by placing all the blame on Mr. Clark for both the institutional vandalism and the obscenity.”

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.

In October 2020, New Orleans Archbishop Gregory Aymond conducted a ceremony in which he burned the altar upon which the trio had performed their “demonic” act, which had reportedly been viewed by passersby, hence the criminal charges.

Earlier in 2020 he appeared here when his archdiocese declared bankruptcy in the face of an avalanche of abuse lawsuits.

Also in 2020, Aymond flew aboard a World War II-era biplane on Good Friday to sprinkle holy water on New Orleans in order to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Of note, Aymond last appeared on JMG in June 2022 when when the FBI opened an investigation into local priests accused of trafficking molestation victims across state lines.
