CORPUS CHRISTI – The Nueces County District Attorney’s office has turned information related to the pastor who resigned last week to Corpus Christi Police for a possible investigation.

The office received a letter from the Diocese of Corpus Christi on Friday, District Attorney Mark Skurka said Monday.

Monsignor Michael Heras resigned as pastor of St. Peter Prince of the Apostle’s Parish in Corpus Christi amid an investigation into inappropriate conduct, the Diocese said in a news release late Saturday.

When the diocese received an accusation of inappropriate conduct, Heras was immediately placed on leave, pending a complete investigation, and law enforcement was notified.
