Former Catholic Priest on Trial

Fort Atkinson, WI (Ben Caxton) — A former Catholic priest is on trial. William Nolan is accused of sexually assaulting an altar boy several times more than a decade ago as the pastor at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church in Fort Atkinson. His accuser was 12 years old at the time, and as prosecutors pointed out in opening statements, was not old enough to consent, even if willing “He was conflicted between wanting it, and knowing it was wrong. And it was the side that wanted it that won out.” Nolan’s attorney called the accuser a self-admitted “thief, shoplifter, and compulsive liar.”
