Associate Pastor Accused of Molesting Girl
June 29, 2012
An associate pastor at St. Louis' Cathedral Basilica is on administrative leave after being accused of fondling a teenage girl.
Court documents allege that Jiang repeatedly had sexual contact with a girl younger than 17.
The girl told police he fondled her as a priest and family friend on four different occasions this year in Old Monroe.
The Archdiocese of St. Louis says Jiang is on administrative leave because of the allegations.
Jiang is from Shandong, China.
A message seeking comment Friday from his attorney, Paul D. A'Grosa, wasn't immediately returned.
