(Wyo)-Authorities Say Child Molesting Investigation Continues Into Ret. Catholic Bishop
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming authorities say the criminal investigation into a retired Roman Catholic bishop accused by more than a dozen men of childhood sexual abuse decades ago remains open despite a weekend news story that indicated otherwise.
. The Casper Star-Tribune reported that a victim advocate from the Natrona County district attorney's office had told an alleged victim that retired Bishop Joseph Hart would not be charged, but a Cheyenne police spokesman says the statement was the result of a misunderstanding.
The spokesman says District Attorney Dan Itzen had misunderstood a document, but has told Cheyenne police that he is still pursuing charges against Hart, who now lives in Missouri.
