A priest in the Catholic Diocese of Jackson has been removed following an investigation into sexual contact he had with a teenager in the 1950s.

The Rev. Robert Olivier, of the St. Joseph Parish in Gluckstadt, had sexual contact, but not intercourse, with a female teen over four years, according to a statement from the diocese.

The statement, released Thursday, said the diocese investigated Olivier last month.

He was removed from the ministry following the Dec. 19 completion of the investigation.
