December 19, 1990

A Catholic priest accused of criminal sexual conduct with a former altar boy faces additional charges involving the same youth. Delta County prosecutors filed warrants Tuesday against the Rev. Norbert Paul LaCosse accusing him of three counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct from autumn 1988 to May 1990. Last Friday, Dickinson County Prosecutor Michael Kusz issued warrants accusing LaCosse of two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. LaCosse, who now is in Maryland, was removed as pastor of the American Martyrs Parish in Kingsford in July. Karen Bahrman, assistant prosecutor in Delta County, said the allegations involve incidents from autumn 1988 to May 1990.
