PEARL RIVER, LOUISIANA: A disgraced former priest at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Pearl River, Travis Clark, 39, of Lousiana has pleaded guilty to one count of a felony of having a threesome with two dominatrices on the church's altar in 2020. Travis was arrested when one night on September 30, 2020, a witness noticed lights on inside the church, and on "peering through the window," he saw a half-naked Clark having a sex romp with two women in corsets and high-heeled boots atop the altar.

Travis Clark got a three-year suspended prison sentence for engaging in the unholy trinity, along with three years of supervised probation and a $1,000 fine by the 22nd Judicial District Judge Ellen Creel, reported the Advocate. The two professional dominatrices, Mindy Dixon and Melissa Cheng pleaded guilty in July to misdemeanor counts of institutional vandalism and were slapped with two years of probation. Police had seized sex toys, stage lights, a cell phone, and the tripod-mounted camera.

Clark was dressed in a dark suit and white shirt at the courthouse in Covington where he pleaded guilty in front of the Judge, "I plead guilty your honor," he said. Police found that everything that night was consensual, but they arrested the preacher and his two barely dressed friends on obscenity charges since they were in plain view. Besides as per a report by the New York Post, Dixon reportedly boasted on social media on the eve of the incident that she was going to “defile a house of God.” While the criminal matter is concluded, Clark will have to return to court on January 20 to hear a permanent civil order prohibiting him and his co-defendants from benefitting from the crime.

One of Clark's lawyers, Michael Kennedy, contended that he shouldn't have to serve active probation because the goal of supervised probation is to avoid a future violation. "In this situation, it's an incredibly specific set of facts and conditions that seem very unlikely to ever happen again," Kennedy said. He said that the two women were more likely to repeat the offense, as per the report.

Clark's attorneys informed that he has already paid full restitution to the Archdiocese of New Orleans -- $8,000. A report said that the desecrated altar was burned in the aftermath of Clark’s “demonic” conduct, according to the archbishop of New Orleans, and a new altar was consecrated in November 2020. Clark, who was ordained in 2013 was shortly defrocked after his arrest.
