Sex abuse case assigned to different judge


A new judge has been assigned to a case involving the alleged sexual assault of a boy by a former counselor and priest of a Green Bay Catholic school.

Donald Buzanowski is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child. The alleged victim, 10 years old at the time, was a student at Ss. Peter and Paul School in Green Bay. The abuse is alleged to have taken place in the fall of 1988.

Buzanowski's lawyer, Owen Monfils, filed a request that a new judge be assigned. Buzanowski was scheduled to enter a plea in Judge Kendall M. Kelley's court room on Monday, but upon the court's receipt of the request for a different judge, the case was assigned to Judge J.D. McKay and a new date for an arraignment will be scheduled.
