A Northern Kentucky priest who once faced allegations that he had a sexual relationship with an adult woman in his parish has taken leave from his current parish.

In December of 2003, a parishioner at Blessed Sacrament in Ft. Mitchell accused Father Marc Witte of having an affair with his ex-wife.

Both denied the accusation and the Diocese of Covington Diocese said there was not enough evidence to support it.

On Sunday the diocese confirmed that the bishop advised Witte to take a leave from his current parish, St. Timothy's in Union.
