Archdiocese of Kck Sends Abuse Case to Vatican

November 3, 2012

The archdiocese of Kansas City, Kan. has sent a case of an alleged "predator priest" to the Vatican. Father John Wisner was removed from his ministerial duties last spring after a decades old sexual misconduct accusation from a man in his forties.

Since then, two other men have come forward with similar allegations.

What happens next?

"They will either advise the archbishop on how to proceed, which would probably mean removing him permanently from ministry or they could take the case upon themselves, which means they could continue the investigation," said church spokesperson Rose Hammes.

Hammes says Wisner is still in the Kansas City area, but no longer has any church assignments. He was ordained in 1972.
