The Wyoming Bishop is releasing results in an investigation against one of their own.

Bishop Steven Biegler of the Diocese of Cheyenne says he will continue restrictions on Bishop Emeritus Joseph Hart due to sexual abuse allegations. The allegations came from 2 boys from Wyoming.

Hart served as the Bishop of Cheyenne from 1976 to 2001.

In the release, the Bishop says in 2002 the District Attorney in Casper issued a report that there was no evidence to support the allegations. However, after civil claims against Bishop Hart in Kansas, Biegler ordered an internal investigation in December of last year.
