The Rev. Dennis Puhl, who served at St. Casimir's Catholic Church in Cloquet, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct Wednesday and was sentenced to 21 months.

Judge Jack Littman stayed the 33-year-old priest's sentence and placed him on five years probation on condition he be treated at a church center in Milwaukee.

Puhl was accused of attacking a 16-year-old boy in St. Casimir's parish house last Oct. 8.
