Witnesses to testify against Catholic priest facing sex abuse charges

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A Milwaukee judge dismissed motions Monday by the Milwaukee Catholic archdiocese to keep a jury from hearing testimonies against a priest who faces child sexual abuse charges.

Until Monday, Fr. Franklyn Becker of Mayville had avoided standing trial, but Judge Timothy Wikowiak gave prosecutors the green light to bring witnesses before a jury to testify against Becker.

The trial date has yet to be determined.
