St. Cloud Priest Arrested On Charges Of Sexual Misconduct

The investigation of a Catholic priest in the St. Cloud Diocese has led to an arrest.

Investigations Lieutenant Lori Ellering says that the priest, 51-year-old Anthony Oelrich of St. Cloud, has been arrested after accusations of a sexual assault from a victim who was seeking spiritual advice in 2013 and 2014. The priest was arrested after months of investigation on February 13.

Oelrich was taken to the Stearns County Jail and is being held pending charges of 3rd degree Criminal Sexual Conduct. He was serving at the Christ Newman Center, near the St. Cloud State University campus.

Clergy members are prohibited from sexual relationships under Minnesota statutes.
