The former Marietta and St. John’s priest convicted of sexual liberties with a minor in Wyoming has returned to Washington County and the religious community he formed 14 years ago.

Anthony T. Jablonowski, 68, of 800 Strahler Road, Waterford, registered as a sexually oriented offender Thursday at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Five other sexual offenders have also recently registered, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office report on the issue made public Friday.

Sheriff Larry Mincks said a sexually oriented offender is a first time sexual offender who must register with local law enforcement for the length of their classification, which Mincks said can run from 10 years to a lifetime. Jablonowski was designated as a lifetime sexually oriented offender.
