A priest has pleaded innocent to molesting a St. Catherine's Indian School student. The Rev. Dennis Fountain is scheduled to be tried in about three months on one court of criminal sexual contact with a minor while he was a dorm supervisor at the Indian School. Two other charges were dropped after a preliminary hearing earlier this month. Fountain, 49., at one time had 167 charges against him but a judge dismissed them because a prosecutor improperly influenced a grand jury.
