Twin Cities Archdiocese Admits To Wrongdoing In Molestation Case

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has agreed to publicly admit wrongdoing for the way it handled abuse allegations against a former priest.

Prosecutors say they’ll drop six criminal child endangerment charges that alleged the archdiocese turned a blind eye to repeated misconduct by Curtis Wehmeyer.

He was convicted of molesting two boys in Minnesota and one in Wisconsin.

The admission of wrongdoing is part of a beefed–up civil agreement.

Ramsey County prosecutors filed civil and criminal charges against the archdiocese last year.
