|Fr. Richard James Kurtz, S.J.|
The priest accused of sexually assaulting a boy is Father Richard Kurtz. He was arrested by agents from the FBI violent crimes task force in a case from 10 years ago when Kurtz was a teacher at a Catholic high school in Michigan. Kurtz was taken into custody without any trouble at the Jesuit's Society of Jesus headquarters on North Clark Street. He is being held on $100,000 bond and extradition proceedings have been started by authorities in Colorado.
The longtime priest is accused of sexually assaulting a child while on a trip to Douglas County, Colorado in 2001. At the time, Father Kurtz was a chemistry teacher at University of Detroit High School in southeastern Michigan. Authorities tell the I-Team that Kurtz and the boy knew each other. Although the crime occurred 10 years ago, sheriff's investigators in Colorado said it was June of this year that they were notified by Jesuit officials in Detroit of the allegation.
