Ohio Catholic official accused of abuse

Monsters and Critics

CINCINNATI, OH, United States (UPI) -- A Cincinnati archdiocesan official has been put on leave after claims he sexually abused a former employee and hired a criminal to conduct background checks.

WCPO-TV in Cincinnati first reported allegations by Alex Henties that former boss and archdiocesan Personnel Director Vincent Frasher molested him when he was young. The archdiocese hired Henties in 2003 to run its criminal background checks on church employees and volunteers.
