MOUNT CALVARY, Wis. (AP) -- A Catholic priest in Fond du Lac County has been placed on administrative leave following allegations of sexual misconduct involving a Montana minor more than 25 years ago.
The Capuchin Province of St. Joseph released a statement Monday announcing the suspension of the Rev. Dennis Druggan. He was the rector and president of St. Lawrence Seminary High School in Mount Calvary.
The statement says the alleged incidents involved a minor at St. Labre Indian School in Ashland, Mont. There have been no allegations stemming from his work in Wisconsin.
The province says the statute of limitations for prosecution has expired. The prosecutor's office in Montana's Rosebud County says neither it nor the sheriff's department could confirm or deny an ongoing investigation.
A message left for Druggan through the seminary was not immediately returned.
