Defense attorneys are seeking details of the sex life of an openly gay man who is listed as a witness in the case against a suspended Mesa priest charged with sex crimes involving teenage boys.

Brian Jones, a former employee of St. Timothy's Catholic Church once pastored by Monsignor Dale Fushek, is a prosecution witness in the case.

During a March 29 deposition, Jones refused to answer when asked to list the number of his homosexual relationships. He also would not answer questions about his upbringing and past employment.
