Former Omaha chancellor faces new theft charges
January 18, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: The former chancellor of the Omaha, Nebraska archdiocese faces new criminal charges for allegedly taking funds from a parish account for his personal use.
Father Michael Gutgsell had been indicted last year, with prosecutors saying that he took over $150,000 from the savings of another priest who suffered from dementia. Police reported that he also admitted taking funds from his parish. The latest charge involves another parish in the archdiocese, from which he reportedly siphoned more than $100,000.
