Former Michigan Priest Charged With Sexually Abusing 5-Year-Old Boy After Funeral for Boy’s Relative

A former priest who served at Catholic churches in Genesee County is facing a new count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The Michigan Attorney General’s Office already charged 80-year-old Vincent DeLorenzo with three counts of first-degree and three counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct. A fourth count of first-degree CSC was announced on Tuesday.

Attorney General Dana Nessel said the new charge stems from inappropriate sexual contact DeLorenzo allegedly had with a 5-year-old boy after a funeral for the boy’s relative in 1987.

DeLorenzo was one of the first five Catholic priests that Nessel charged this year. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
