GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - An ordained priest who voluntarily left the ministry over 40 years ago has been accused of sexually abusing a child in the 1960s while he was a priest.

A release from the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay says they received the allegation against Jerome Koerner in May. Koerner left the priesthood in 1972 and has not performed any priestly duties since.

Diocesan officials say that Koerner denies the allegations.

The diocese says it dispensed Koerner from the clerical state and notified civil authorities.

The diocese did not say where the alleged abuse happened or where Koerner served as a priest.
