An Iowa priest who was previously convicted for invasion of privacy has had his suspension from priestly ministry fully lifted.
According to a release from the Catholic Diocese of Des Moines, Father Paul Monahan was previously convicted of five counts of invasion of privacy. But that conviction was reversed earlier this year. He was accused of invading the privacy of young boys inside a locker room at Treynor High School in 2016. Father Monahan was the former principal at St. Albert High School.
