July 12, 2012
A Catholic priest was placed on administrative leave Thursday, after allegations he sexually abused a minor.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus said the accusations against Reverend Thomas Brosmer, 68, date back to his time at the Saint Nicholas Parish in Zanesville in the 1970s.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the diocese found out about the accusation, reported it to police and placed Brosmer on administrative leave.
The diocese said it plans to talk to people in areas where Brosmer has served to see if others come forward.
