Appeals Court Orders New Trial For St. Paul Priest

The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Monday reversed a sexual misconduct conviction and ordered a new trial for a St. Paul priest accused of having sex with a woman who was seeking his spiritual advice. The 22-page ruling said the lower court made several errors during Christopher Wenthe’s trial. Wenthe was convicted in 2011 of third-degree criminal sexual conduct after a woman reported the sexual conduct.
