Has the Wisconsin Statute of Limitations Run on 84-Year-Old Catholic Priest Who Allegedly Assaulted Three Girls in the 1960s?

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals is considering hearing the question of whether the criminal statute of limitations has run on an 84-year-old former Catholic priest who is alleged to have sexually assaulted three girls while a chaplain at a hospital in the 1960s.  The defendant faces two counts of sexual intercourse with a child, four counts of indecent behavior with a child and one count of attempted indecent behavior with a child. If convicted, the former priest faces up to 80 years in prison. Source.  Jennifer Woldt, wiscnews.com. For the complete story, please click here (last visited June 17, 2006, reo).
