NEK Priest Due in Court

WCAX [Vermont]
September 11, 2006

A Northeast Kingdom priest will be arraigned Monday, for allegedly victimizing an 18-year-old man.

Father Stephen Nichols is charged with lewd and lascivious conduct. Bishop Salvatore Matano said Father Nichols engaged in some sort of sexual behavior with the 18-year-old in Franklin County.

In April, Father Nichols requested a leave of absence from St. Elizabeth's in Lyndonville and Our Lady, Queen of Peace in Danville.

Before working in those parishes, he also served the diocese in Lowell and Troy.
