MUGSHOT: Texas Priest Accused of Sexual Assault During Last Rites


(Austin, TX) -- A Catholic priest in Austin is accused of sexually assaulting a woman while administering last rites.

Police say the Reverend Gerold Langsch fondled a woman in hospice care last October while there to perform the religious ceremony.

Langsch was arrested last month and charged with misdemeanor assault by contact.

The Diocese of Austin says it will cooperate with the police. The Diocese also said that Langsch had already been removed from his position because of another unrelated incident.
