The Catholic Diocese of Richmond announced Tuesday that an individual who previously came forward and accused a retired diocesan priest of child sexual abuse has recanted the accusations.

The allegations were made earlier this year against Father William Dinga Jr. ‘This recantation by the alleged victim exonerates Father Dinga of these accusations’ the Catholic Diocese said in a news release.
