Cedarburg Priest Put on Leave during Sexual Abuse Investigation
September 4, 2015
A Milwaukee-area Catholic priest has been put on leave while a 38-year-old accusation of sexual abuse is investigated.
Parishioners of St. Francis Borgia, in Cedarburg, were notified by Archbishop Jerome Listecki that the Rev. Tom Eichenberger has recently been named in a case dating back to 1977.
The archdiocese said it turned the information over to the district attorney’s office, which declined to prosecute.
The case has been turned over to an independent investigator.
