For Fr. Wenig, Chapter Two Begins

This comes as no surprise whatsoever:

The [Milwaukee County] district attorney’s office has concluded after reviewing the complaint that the statute of limitations prohibits a prosecution from moving forward, according to Milwaukee County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern. --Cath. Herald via BadgerCath

But that's not the end of the story. The Archdiocese will be running its own investigation, the results of which will govern the disposition of Fr. Wenig's ministry.

Wenig is regarded as a very intelligent guy--if somewhat erratic--so I'd be surprised if the allegations are stone-cold proven.

OTOH, it wouldn't be the first time that intelligence lost out to lower passions.
