The Archdiocese of Cincinnati says the Vatican has defrocked a priest accused of sexual misconduct.

The Reverend Richard Unwin was removed from the priesthood after he acknowledged engaging in inappropriate sexual behavior 15 years ago.

Unwin has been on administrative leave for almost four years.

He served as pastor of St. John the Baptist parish in Tipp City, Ohio north of Dayton.
