Former priest accused of abuse pleads guilty to lesser charges

A former priest accused of sexual abuse has pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

Rev. Joseph Muench pleaded guilty to first degree unlawful imprisonment and an amended charge of criminal attempt to commit sexual abuse.

He once served as an associate priest at Frankfort’s Good Shepherd Church.

The Commonwealth’s Attorney says several alleged victims agreed to the conditions of the plea deal.

Muench will be sentenced in May.
