A Catholic priest accused of sexual misconduct with a Montana child more than 25 years ago is now placed on administrative leave from his position in Wisconsin.
The Fond du Lac Reporter newspaper reports Father Dennis Druggan, president and rector at St. Lawrence Seminary High School was placed on administrative leave Friday.
More than 10 alleged victims have filed a complaint against the Roman Catholic Great Falls-Billings Diocese. The suit alleges several priests and nuns molested children at St. Labre Mission School in Ashland as well as several other schools and institutions across eastern Montana.
The complaint details mental, physical and sexual child abuse and says the diocese sent known perpetrators to remote areas in Montana.
The Fond du Lac Reporter also states there have been no allegations involving Druggan's ministry at St. Lawrence High School.
