Prosecutor says accused priests should leave retreat house


April 1, 2006 (MUNDELEIN, Ill.) - Lake County State's Attorney Michael Waller says more than a dozen Roman Catholic priests accused of sexual misconduct with minors no longer should live on a Mundelein seminary's property across from a high school.

Waller's complaint comes in the wake of a report criticizing the church for poor monitoring of the priests living at a University of St. Mary of the Lake retreat house.

The report was commissioned by the Archdiocese of Chicago, and archdiocesan spokesman Jim Dwyer says moving the priests out of the retreat house is not improbable.
