Retired Catholic priest charged with invasion of privacy

(AP) -

A retired Catholic priest in western Iowa has been charged with five counts of invasion of privacy over an alleged incident at a high school track meet in April.

A news release Friday from the Diocese of Des Moines announced that the Rev. Paul Monahan had been suspended on July 8 after the diocese learned of the investigation.

Monahan was charged by the Iowa Attorney General's Office, which has not released details of the April incident.

Monahan was ordained in 1960 and retired in 2004. Afterward, he served as a senior chaplain at St. Albert Schools in Council Bluffs.

Monahan did not immediately return a message left Saturday by The Associated Press seeking comment.
