Nessel Charges Michigan Priest With False Imprisonment

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has charged a Michigan priest with felony false imprisonment.

Special agents from the attorney general’s office arrested Father Brian Stanley of Coloma.

He’s accused of holding a teenage boy against his will in a janitor’s room at St. Margaret’s Church back in 2013.

The attorney general’s office says Stanley wrapped the teen in plastic wrap, and put masking tape over his eyes and mouth.

He then left the boy in the room for more than an hour before returning and letting him go.

The charge against Stanley carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

If convicted, he will also have to register as a sex offender.
