Priest charged in prostitution sting

August 15, 2009


— A Wichita priest has been charged with lewd and lascivious behavior and other misdemeanors after being arrested last week in a prostitution sting.

Five men and two women were arrested in the Aug. 7 sting operation in Oak Park, including the Rev. Leslie “Doug” Campbell. The 64-year-old priest serves at St. Jude’s Catholic Church.

The charges against Campbell also include misdemeanor public nudity and being in the park after hours.

The diocese says Campbell has been temporarily relieved of his duties at the church and will receive counseling.

His arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 27.

Why just mention Father Campbell's name, how about mentioning the other individuals involved in this?? Is this the season to bash the Catholic Church?

Oh great. Yet another priest caught doing naughty sex things. This is the middle name of the catholic church. Perhaps though this time it was with women and not boys.
