Archbishop John Nienstedt, the head of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, is being investigated for allegations of sexual misconduct, including claims that he made unwanted sexual advances toward a former Twin Cities priest, according to a report posted online Tuesday by Commonweal Magazine.
Nienstedt denies the allegations and says the archdiocese is conducting an internal investigation into them.
Dr. Charles Reid, a law professor and Catholic Church expert from the University of St. Thomas School of Law, gives his analysis.
