Former Priest Removed from Clergy

July 5, 2013

The Green Bay Catholic Diocese says a former priest who was accused of sexually abusing a minor in the 1960s is officially no longer a member of the clergy.

Jerome Koerner voluntarily left the priesthood in 1972, and the diocese took the formal step of removing him after the allegation surfaced in May of last year.

The diocese referred the matter to authorities.
