Man Accuses Roeland Park Priest of Sexual Misconduct

May 10, 2012

A 45-year-old man has accused a Roeland Park priest of sexual misconduct.

The man claims the Rev. John Wisner touched him inappropriately when his was 15 years old during a youth outing in 1982.

"While Father Wisner acknowledges the time, location and circumstances surrounding the allegation, he denies that he engaged in any sexual misconduct," Archbishop Joseph Naumann said in a news release.

Naumann said that Wisner has been temporarily relieved of his ministerial responsibilities and is restricted from exercising his priestly ministry until an investigation is complete.

Wisner has served as an associate pastor at St. Agnes Parish since 1985.
