Former pastor of Maumee church indicted for sexual imposition


Rev. Frank Murd


A Roman Catholic priest was indicted Wednesday morning on one misdemeanor count of sexual imposition for an incident that led to his resignation as the pastor of St. Joseph s Catholic Church in Maumee.

The charge was handed down against the Rev. Frank Murd by a Lucas County grand jury and stems from an alleged incident that occurred March 18 in a hot tub at the YMCA/JCC.

Sylvania Township police investigated the accusation against Father Murd, 65, who had been pastor of St. Joseph s since July, 2003 before his resignation earlier this month.

Bishop Leonard Blair mailed a letter April 10 to St. Joseph parishioners stating that Father Murd had informed his office earlier that week that he was under investigation for an accusation involving an incident of improper sexual contact with an adult.
