Another priest accused of child molestation

Rev. Curtis Wehmeyer, formerly of Blessed Sacrament parish in St. Paul, was arrested for allegedly abusing a juvenile. Wehmeyer was removed from his position pending a police investigation. He has not yet been charged.

St. Paul police filed a report Thursday that said a juvenile reported being sexually abused by Wehmeyer for two years, starting in 2010. Police arrested Wehmeyer on Friday. He has been released, and has not been charged.

Police spokesman Howie Padilla said the victim was a boy, but could not divulge more details because of the ongoing investigation.

One would think that a priest in St. Paul might be aware of another series of investigations and would therefore be less inclined to violate a young boy.
