Wisconsin priest charged with sexual assault

Posted under 3620edc7-2717-499b-88ae-17b98eafcf5f

Charges are pending for a Wisconsin priest who is accused of sexually assaulting a 15 year-old girl in La Crosse earlier this month.

The teenager claims a drunk man approached her and her friends late at night in downtown La Crosse. Her friends managed to take a cell phone picture of the man, which police used to identify the priest. The man later admitted it was him in the picture. The 37 year-old priest said he had a few drinks that night and remembers talking to a group of students, but denies any wrongdoing.

The man is charged with second-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 16. He has since resigned from his position at Sacred Heart School of Theology in Franklin.
