November 13, 2018

PIEDMONT, S.D. (KOTA TV) -- West River Catholic authorities reversed course on Friday after some Piedmont parents questioned their plan to house an accused priest at a church residence across the street from a middle school.

Father John Praveen was arrested on Oct. 22 following a joint Rapid City Police and Pennington County Sheriff's Office investigation. He is accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl on two occasions. He is being held in the Pennington County Jail pending trial. His bail has been set at $100,000 cash only.
