(Clearwater, FL) Over a decade ago, we reported on the arrest of Fr Koumianos Hatzileris (when he was with the Synod of Gregory of Colorado) soliciting a prostitute and getting an undercover cop instead. Well, two decades later and at over 70 years old, he’s back with a sexual battery charge!

Hatzileris, a retired priest of the Greek Orthodox Traditionalist Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Clearwater (who somehow still retained credibility somewhere as a priest in Florida) was arrested Monday for sexual battery on a woman (while robed, according to WFLA) at his Tarpon Springs home.

Apparently he was a retired priest of a few weeks of the HOTCA, when the incident occurred. The woman was not a parishioner. He has been suspended indefinitely from serving, according to Bishop Christodoulos of New York. While depositions are rare, particularly for old, old people, repeat sexual offenders in the cloth are particularly controversial nowadays.
