A retired priest accused of exposing himself to a teenager has been bound over for trial.

Richard Thomas appeared in a Brown County courtroom Monday where he waived his preliminary hearing. A judge ordered the case move forward to trial.

Thomas, 78, was arrested in April on four felony counts of exposing himself to a minor.

According to a criminal complaint, Thomas exposed himself to a 16-year-old boy on March 14, 15, 16 and 17.

The teen told investigators while he walked to school, past Grellinger Hall in Allouez, he saw a naked man standing in one of the windows. Grellinger Hall is an independent living facility for retired priests.

The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay released a statement after Thomasís arrest, saying the retired priest has been restricted from performing public ministry pending the outcome of the investigation.

Thomasís arraignment hearing is scheduled for May 23.
