October 27, 2010

A jury finds a catholic priest from the Diocese of La Crosse not guilty of sexual assault.

48-year-old Edmund Donkor-Baine was accused of inappropriately touching a woman he counseled in August of last year.

The accuser first told the Diocese of La Crosse about the alleged incident in September of last year and then reported it to the La Crosse County Sheriff's Department three months later.

The jury deliberated for more than four hours before finding Donkor Baine not guilty.
