Former St. Paul priest pleads guilty to assaulting man in Wisconsin


A former priest serving prison time in Minnesota for molesting two young brothers pleaded guilty Friday in Wisconsin to sexually assaulting their older brother.

Curtis Wehmeyer, 50, pleaded guilty in Chippewa County Circuit Court to third-degree sexual assault in the 2011 abuse of an 18-year-old man. He initially had been charged with second-degree sexual assault.

Wehmeyer was sentenced the day of his plea to six years in prison, three to be served in custody and three under supervision, said Wade Newell, the Chippewa County assistant district attorney.
