St. Louis Police Officers File Sex Abuse Lawsuit

St. Louis, MO – Two St. Louis police officers have filed a lawsuit in federal court on sexual harassment claims. They say a Catholic priest who once served as police board president victimized them.

The lawsuit against Reverend Maurice Nutt claims Nutt made unwanted advances to the men. The Reverend has publicly denied any wrongdoing.

He left the police board and St. Alphonsus "Rock" Catholic Church in St. Louis when complaints surfaced last year.
