BRAINTREE (CBS) The Archdiocese of Boston has placed a Plymouth reverend on administrative leave due to new child sex abuse allegations.

Rev. James E. Braley, the Pastor of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Parish in Plymouth, is accused of sexually abusing a child in the early 1980′s.

"We remain committed to doing everything possible to ensure the safety and well-being of children and young people in our parishes and institutions," said Cardinal Seán P. O'Malley.
