WOODLAND PARK, N.J. (AP) -- A Byzantine Catholic priest who was expelled following claims that he sexually abused boys in New Jersey is living in Wisconsin.
The Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Passaic notified parishioners that 49-year-old Glenn Davidowich received and accepted notice removing him "from the clerical state" effective April 2.
He had been on leave since 2011, when the eparchy reached a $200,000 settlement with a 36-year-old Hopewell man who claimed he was abused.
Attorney Mitchell Garabedian tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the eparchy settled a second lawsuit in June.
Davidowich was never charged.
The cleric in 2002 was identified as the founder of a company that produced and sold videos of teenage boys wrestling in bikini-style bottoms.
Property records show he lives in Manitowoc, Wis., with his partner in that venture.
