A Wittenberg Priest is accused of sexually abusing a minor more than 20 years ago. Now Father Mike Carroll is on administrative leave until the investigation is over.

He's been the parish priest at Holy Family, St. William Parish for the last three years. Father Mike denies the allegation. He met with 75 parishioners Sunday to talk about the situation and asked them to pray for his accuser.

The parishioners say they are supporting Father 100 percent and believe he's innocent.

Representatives from the Green Bay Diocese will meet with parishioners later this week to talk with them and try to answer questions.
