Update: Priest denies abuse allegations during church service

August 5, 2014

St. Edmond Catholic Church has posted a video detailing the Rev. Gilbert Dutel's response to sexual abuse allegations.

Dutel responded to the allegations during church service at St. Edmond on Sunday, when his congregation gave him a standing ovation.

"I maintained my innocence then, and I maintain my innocence now," he says.

The allegations surfaced recently after a Minnesota Public Radio report delved into sex abuse allegations dating back to the 1970s.
