Two priests suspended due to molestation claims
IOWA CITY (AP) — Two Catholic priests in eastern Iowa have been temporarily removed from the ministry during an investigation into allegations that they sexually molested children decades ago, the Diocese of Davenport said Monday.
The diocese received separate reports of abuse allegations late last week against Father Robert Harness, the pastor of Holy Family Church in Davenport, and John Stack, the chaplain at Mercy Medical Center in Clinton, spokesman David Montgomery said.
He said the diocese turned over the reports to the Scott County Attorney’s Office, which has given church officials permission to proceed with an internal investigation into the claims.
