York Catholic High School is acknowledging that a former teacher was a part of a list of accusations provided by the Diocese of Harrisburg earlier this week.

According to the school district Father William Cawley taught at York Catholic from 1988 until 2012. Cawley was included on the list of priest who's abuse was alleged to have happened at a different diocese.

According to the school district Father Cawley left the Diocese of Harrisburg in 2012 following a lawsuit from Montana accusing him of sexual abuse of a child prior to him joining the diocese of Harrisburg.

According to the diocese and York Catholic there were no prior allegations of abuse against Father Cawley before the 2012 Lawsuit.
