CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – Wyoming police have recommended sexual abuse charges against a member of the Catholic clergy and another man in connection with events in the 1970s and 1980s.
In a press release, the Cheyenne Police Department made the recommendation to the Laramie County District Attorney’s Office regarding abuse of boys.
The men were not identified in a police statement that says one man was a clergy member and the other was seeking clergy membership at the time.
Police say the investigation stems from a 2002 case that was reopened in 2018 following an investigation by the Wyoming Diocese of the Catholic Church.
The diocese released a report in June naming 11 people believed to have been involved in abuse of 29 minors and a vulnerable adult between 1957 and 2003.
