A priest will face a review from his missionary home in Fairfield after a Kentucky grand jury declined to indict him in connection with allegations he acted inappropriately with teens.

According to a statement issued by John Stegeman, spokesman for the Glenmary Home Missioners in Fairfield, “a grand jury in Lewis County, Kentucky has declined to indict Glenmary Father Dave Glockner on allegations he touched two teens inappropriately in early August.

The grand jury returned a ‘no true bill,’ which means it found no credible evidence that a crime was committed.”In August, Glockner was ordered back from his ministerial work in Lewis County following the accusations.
