 A priest has resigned as chaplain of a Catholic high school in northeastern Indiana after he was accused of sexually abusing a minor, the local diocese says.

The Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend said Monday in a statement that it learned Sept. 19 of “allegations that Father David Huneck engaged in sexual and other misconduct, including that with a minor.”

Huneck has resigned both as chaplain at Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne and as pastor at Saint Paul of the Cross Catholic Church in Columbia City, the diocese said. He has also been suspended by the diocese from “all public priestly ministry,” according to the statement.
