A Roman Catholic priest, who admitted illegal sexual conduct with three boys, will be allowed to conduct religious services until he is sentenced next month for his crimes.
The Rev. Donald Patrick Roemer, 36, pleaded guilty Tuesday to making sexual advances in an agreement with prosecutors who in exchange dropped several similar charges. He will be sentenced April 14.
Roemer, assistant pastor at St. Paschal Baylon Catholic Church, was arrested Jan. 26 and charged with making sexual advances to a 7-year-old boy. He later was accused of committing sexual acts with nine boys between 7 and 13 years old last year.
Superior Court Judge Robert Shaw ordered a psychiatric examination of the priest before he pronounces sentence. Roemer will remain free on his own recognizance and will be allowed to conduct religious services, but he will not be permitted to perform counseling duties.
The case initially involved seven felony counts of child molesting and two misdemeanor counts of child annoyance. Roemer agreed not to fight charges involving three of the boys and the other counts were dropped.
He could be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
