A sex charge has been dropped against a local Catholic priest. Father Dennis Sewar was charged with forcible touching and sexual abuse involving a 14-year-old boy in October of 1999. According to Sewar's Attorney, judge John Elliott has thrown out the forcible touching charge because of a lack of evidence but Sewar still faces the misdemeanor sexual abuse charge. His trial is set for April 3.
