A Santa Fe priest charged with sexually assaulting a student at Saint Catherine's Indian School was released on bond Thursday.

Father Dennis Fountain was arrested in Albuquerque Wednesday on charges he molested a 13-year-old boy while dean at the school.

An arrest affidavit said the boy told authorities Fountain pulled him into his lap and fondled him and that a school employee witnessed the incident.

Saint Catherines is a Catholic boarding school for junior high and high school students.
