Father Tikhon Fallon was a monk at Christ of the Hills Monastery (COTH) in Blanco Texas. He was initially charged with sexual assault of a child for an incident which occurred at the monastery in June, 1995. At the time of the alleged misconduct, COTH was affiliated with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.

Fallon pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted aggravated assault on October 10, 2008. The deferred adjudication plea bargain called for the former monk to pay a $5,000 fine, undergo psychological evaluation, and serve five years probation.
