COLTS NECK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A New Jersey state assemblywoman is among those calling for Newark Archbishop John Myers to be held accountable, after a once-accused pedophile priest suddenly popped up at Colts Neck church youth retreats.
The Rev. Michael Fugee, a Newark Archdiocese priest, was convicted in 2003 of molesting a boy. The conviction was overturned by an appeals court, CBS 2’s Lou Young reported earlier this week.
Fugee, 52, entered into an agreement with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office to avoid retrial on the abuse conviction after the groping incident six years ago. The agreement required Fugee never again to have unsupervised contact with children under the age of 18.
