An allegation of sexual abuse by an Omaha priest dates to his service at Norfolk church.
Deacon Timothy McNeil, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha,
says the allegation against Rev. Franklin Dvorak came to light at
the end of March. He's accused of sexually abusing a female student
from 1970 to 1972.
Dvorak was placed on leave Friday from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
parish in Omaha. He was appointed pastor there in 2007.
McNeil says Dvorak was at Sacred Heart Parish in Norfolk at the
time of the alleged abuse. He says the claim has been deemed
credible by a review board.
Dvorak denies the allegation.
