Pastor Resigns After Texting Allegations Have Come Against Him
Anthony Cutcher has resigned from his position at St. Peter Catholic Church after an allegation that he “was texting a minor in a manner that was inconsistent with the requirement of the Decree on Child Protection,” the parish announced.
Cutcher was placed on leave in mid-January following the allegation and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati contacted the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office to review the allegation.
“At this time, we have no information that would support the opening of a criminal investigation,” the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
Cutcher worked as the Pastor of Pastoral Region XII, which includes St. Peter, Our Lady of the Rosary, Holy Cross and St. Adalbert Parishes.
The parish also said the school at St. Peter Catholic Church also remains safe for children attending their.
“Our focus on maintaining a safe environment will not be compromised,” the church said.
Father John Tonkin will serve as pastor until a new pastor is named in July.
