Diocese of Greensburg Priest Charged for Sexually Assaulting an Altar Boy
According to the Post Gazette, the Diocese of Greensburg priest arrested and charged for repeatedly sexually assaulting an altar boy between 2004 and 2007. The victim at the beginning of the alleged assault was 11-years-old.
The victim told investigations that he was repeatedly exposed to the 65-year-old priest Andrew Kawecki’s abuse as an altar server. He then detailed some of his abuse to investigators and said that Father Kawecki would instruct him to arrive for altar duty early and make him stay late. It was during those times he would be alone with Father Kawecki, and the alleged abuse occurred. On multiple occasions, Kawecki would make the boy masturbate him, and once forced him to perform oral sex.
Kawecki is charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, and two counts of indecent assault.
