Priest-Counselor Guilty in Assault
January 22, 1992
A priest who counseled the family of one of accused serial killer Jeffrey L. Dahmer's victims pleaded no contest today to a second-degree sexual assault charge involving a teenage boy.
Rev. Peter Burns, 32, was then found guilty of that offense by Sheboygan County Circuit Judge Gary Langhoff, who dropped two other counts of the same charge as requested by the district attorney as part of a plea bargain. (The following paragraphs were not published.)
Authorities said the count to which the priest pleaded no contest and one of the others involved 1988 incidents involving a boy then 13 years old, and the other count involved a 1987 incident involving a boy 14 years old who came forward after the initial charges were filed.
Burns received publicity last summer for counseling the family of 14-year-old Konerak Sinthasomphone of Milwaukee, who has been identified as one of 17 people Dahmer told of killing and dismembering. Dahmer was arrested at his Milwaukee apartment in July. The remains of Sinthasomphone, who disappeared last May, were among those found in the apartment.
