GREEN BAY — A retired priest has pleaded not guilty to allegations that exposed himself to a minor in Brown County.

Rev. Richard Thomas pleaded not guilty to four counts of exposing himself during an appearance in court Monday.

WLUK-TV reports the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay has restricted the 78-year-old priest from any public ministry. Thomas was living in Grellinger Hall, a home for retired priests in Allouez. He’s accused of exposing himself four times in March to a 16-year-old boy who was walking to school.

The complaint says Thomas told investigators he is already seeking treatment.
