Plea agreement filed in sex abuse investigation of local priest
WHITLEY COUNTY, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - Online court records show a plea agreement has been filed in the case against a local priest who is facing several sex crime charges after documents say he assaulted two teens earlier this year.
The priest, David Huneck, had served as a pastor in Columbia City and as a chaplain at Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne before stepping down. He was then charged with child seduction, sexual battery, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, furnishing alcohol to a minor, and two counts of battery.
A plea agreement was filed in the case last week, according to online court records. Prosecutors were not able to disclose the details of the agreement. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
