A Catholic priest caught having a threesome with two porn stars on his church altar will not be charged with obscenity. Travis Clark, 37, instead faces a charge of felony vandalism over the September 2020 incident at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in New Orleans.

The women he was with, Mindy Dixon, 41, and Melissa Cheng, 28, face the same charge. Clark’s lawyer Bradley Phillips said it was ‘rightful’ not to pursue obscenity charges because the priest and his lovers were having consensual sex in a private place.

Phillips also lashed the vandalism charge as prurient, saying: ‘Once again, they have overstepped their bounds as this nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to regulate the morality of private individuals. Just because you don’t like something, doesn’t make it criminal. My clients look forward to their day in court as we continue to fight this baseless allegation.’

Clark and the women – both dominatrixes who were wearing corsets and high heels – were caught after a passer-by strolled past the church, noticed a light was on inside, and looked through a window, only to be confronted with the trio having sex.

Dixon and Cheng were recording themselves performing sex acts on Clark using a phone and camera on a tripod.

Police were called, and removed plastic sex toys as well as stage lights from the scene. The original obscenity charge was filed after prosecutors alleged the three were having sex in a place ‘open to the public view.’ Clark was axed from his job by the Archdiocese of New Orleans after the scandal emerged, and has yet to comment on the threesome.

He now stands accused of ‘knowingly vandalizing, defacing or otherwise damaging property and causing damage valued between $500 and $50,000.’

The altar that Clark and the women had sex on was subsequently removed and burned, with a new plinth since consecrated. Archbishop Gregory Aymond shared an online video addressing the issue of Clark's arrest.

He said: "Many people feel anger, betrayal and disappointment, and I feel the same way, as do my brother priests. Regarding Travis, his obscene behaviour was deplorable, his desecration of the altar in the church was demonic and I am infuriated by his actions. When the details became clear we had the altar removed and burned. I will consecrate a new altar tomorrow."
