DUPAGE COUNTY -- A DuPage County judge Monday approved more mental-health examinations for Rev. Frederick A. Lenczycki, 61, a Roman Catholic priest and convicted sex offender who DuPage authorities are trying to have declared a sexually violent person.

Lenczycki was convicted in 2004 of abusing three boys while serving at St. Isaac Jogues Church in Hinsdale in 1984. He was to be released from prison last month but was ordered to remain in a mental health treatment facility until a hearing on the state's allegations.
