Priest in violation of restrictions placed on him following inappropriate relationship

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Father Kenneth Kaucheck was forced to resign from the priesthood 7 years ago over a decades old allegation of sexual misconduct.

He was accused of carrying on a relationship with a 16-year-old girl he was counseling at a Clawson parish back in 1976.

The Archdiocese of Detroit barred Kaucheck from public ministry.

While the teen was of age in 1976---and thus---the priest never charged with a crime, it still violated church protocol and raised concerns.

Paula Schnoblen is with the Macomb County based group Turning Point, which advocates for victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

She and others were shocked to learn Father Kaucheck has been quietly surrounding himself with troubled teenage girls.

He is co-founder, Director of Development and on the board of directors at Gianna House. an Eastpointe based ministry for pregnant teens.  (more...)
