MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A former pastor at a St. Paul parish has been charged with criminal sexual conduct after he was accused of molesting one boy and exposing himself to another.

A criminal complaint says Curtis Carl Wehmeyer was the parish priest at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament. He was removed in June after church officials learned of the allegations.

The complaint says a boy told authorities Wehmeyer abused him throughout summer 2010, when he was 12. He said Wehmeyer took him to a camper trailer on church grounds and touched him inappropriately while showing him pornography. The complaint says Wehmeyer also exposed himself to the boy's older brother, who was 15.

The parish referred comment to archdiocese officials, who were preparing a statement. Wehmeyer's attorney didn't immediately return a call.
