Diocese of Greenburg Places Priest on Leave


((WBRE/WYOU-TV) The Diocese of Greensburg in Western Pennsylvania has placed a priest on leave.
      Reverend Joseph Bonafed is accused of sexually abusing a minor nearly 30 years ago.
         The Diocese also removed the name of a former Bishop from its Conference Center amid the fallout of a “State Grand Jury Report” of sexual abuse in the church.
         Diocese officials say the accusations against Bonafed surfaced earlier this week.
