A former Catholic priest is facing a number of charges after authorities say he sexually assaulted two altar boys during his tenure at a Bucks County church.

Francis “Frank” Trauger, 74, was arraigned Tuesday on counts of corruption of minors and indecent assault.

Authorities say Trauger sexually assaulted two boys during the mid-1990s and early 2000s when the victims were approximately 12-years-old. Trauger is accused of assaulting each victim during the robing process prior to mass at St. Michael the Archangel Church in Tullytown.
