Saginaw: Deacon at cathedral accused of sexual assault
Catholic World News - February 24, 2010
A former maintenace worker at the cathedral in Saginaw, Michigan, is alleging that he was sexually assaulted last July by a deacon.
The deacon, who in turn alleged that the maintenance worker had sexually assaulted him, has left the diocese and was not named in local media coverage. In November, Father James Bessert, the cathedral rector, resigned unexpectedly for health reasons.
