Sioux Falls, SD

A Sioux Falls woman says she was sexually harassed while on the job. Her boss? A priest.

While she reported his behavior to leadership in 2014, she now takes issue with the way the Sioux Falls Catholic Diocese handled it.

In the Roman Catholic religion, priests are viewed as a direct line of communication to God.

A church employee, whom we are calling “Cindy,” agreed to come forward to talk about her allegations of sexual harassment against Fr. Justin Wachs on the condition we don’t show her face and have someone else say her words.
