Arwyn N. Diesta
Arwyn Diesta was an extern priest from the Philippines working in the Los Angeles Archdiocese between 1978-1988. In 1992, he was accused of sexually abusing several students from 1982-1988. The abuse occurred at Holy Innocents Catholic Church in Long Beach. Despite these reports — and demands for his removal for over 10 years — Diesta remained an active priest. As of 2013, Diesta was still an active priest in the Philippines.
