Former Area Priest Headed to Prison Again


Jeff Thelen

A retired priest convicted of sexual misconduct in Wisconsin is headed back to prison for at least five more years.

Sixty-six-year-old David Malsch was convicted of child enticement in 1993 and served six years.

In 2001, Malsch was sent a home for troubled priests in Missouri. In 2003, federal authorities searched Malsch's room there and found 28 photos of child porn.

He pleaded guilty to that charge Monday.
