Fmr. Savannah priest indicted in SC for alleged sexual abuse of student | WSAV-TV

Duffie Stone, Solicitor of the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit court, announced that a nine-count indictment has been filed against former Savannah priest Wayland Brown. The charges include criminal sexual misconduct with a minor.  You may remember, Father Brown was accused in a civil case involving Chris Templeton as reported by News3 in July 2016.

The announcement was made during a news conference this morning, Aug. 28. Chris Templeton told news 3 he was involved in this case, but Solicitor Duffie Stone would not name either of the two victims included in the indictments against Brown.

Brown allegedly sexually abused Templeton while he was a student at St. James Catholic School in Savannah.

In 2003, Brown was convicted of molesting two minors in Maryland where he is still serving his 10 year sentence.
 
This is the first time Wayland Brown will be charged with criminal charges for his alleged conduct at St. James where he served as a priest.
