St. Paul priest charged with abusing 2 brothers

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A former pastor at a St. Paul parish is being charged with criminal sexual conduct after he was accused of molesting one boy and exposing himself to another.

A criminal complaint says Curtis Carl Wehmeyer was the parish priest at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament. He was removed from duty in June after church officials learned of the allegations.

According to the complaint, a boy told authorities Wehmeyer abused him throughout the summer of 2010, when he was 12. He said Wehmeyer took him to a camper trailer on church grounds and touched him inappropriately while showing him pornography. The complaint says Wehmeyer also exposed himself to the boy's older brother, who was 15.

Messages left for the parish and for Wehmeyer's attorney were not immediately returned Friday.
