A second alleged victim testified against Catholic priest Donald Wren Kimball in California during March of this year. Now 34 she was 13 when the priest molested her according to court testimony.

The woman said the priest forced her to stroke his penis, fondled her breasts and penetrated her with his finger.

Kimball, 58, was charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in 1977 and lewd conduct with a 13- year-old girl in 1981.

As of March of this year Kimball was still a priest, but not allowed to perform priestly duties.

Kimball allegedly told the girls they should be "open and receptive to touch, in order to experience God's love."

Kimball's bishop John Steinbock testified previously that the priest had confessed to molesting teenagers.

The woman also testified that the priest only ceased when she physically stopped him. She said that she was scared and revolted by Kimball's behavior.

Michael Poirier once a parishioner of Kimball's said, "I know he is not the devil, but he has done evil."
