The Diocese of Buffalo’s No. 2 administrator has been suspended for allegations of sexual misconduct.

Fr. Peter Karalus, the vicar general of the diocese, was placed on administrative leave Saturday “following an allegation of sexual misconduct by a person who was a minor in 2011,” interim Bishop Edward Scharfenberger said in a news release.

The news release gave no further details about the allegations but said they were referred to the Erie County District Attorney.
