Update: Priest denies abuse allegations during church service
August 5, 2014
St. Edmond Catholic Church has posted a video detailing the Rev. Gilbert Dutel's response to sexual abuse allegations.
Dutel responded to the allegations during church service at St. Edmond on Sunday, when his congregation gave him a standing ovation.
"I maintained my innocence then, and I maintain my innocence now," he says.
The allegations surfaced recently after a Minnesota Public Radio report delved into sex abuse allegations dating back to the 1970s.
