WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Archdiocese of Detroit put a priest on leave late last week after an allegation of sexual misconduct in the early years of his ministry.

The diocese released a statement which states that Fr. Gary Schulte, the pastor of St. Sylvester Parish in Warren, was placed on an administrative leave of absence on October 28, 2011.

Fr. Schulte is currently restricted from any public ministry.

The diocese says the allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor are from the early days of Fr. Schulte's ministry and surfaced last month.
