September 15, 2004

A former Milwaukee priest will likely go to prison for molesting a boy.

Simon Palathingal pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child.

The assault happened in the early 1990s while Palathingal was studying at Marquette University.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in November.

Mediators said they've resolved 37 claims of clergy abuse in the Milwaukee archdiocese.
