Owensboro priest to keep position with diocese

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Father James Meredith will keep his position as a priest; but according to the assistant to the Bishop, no date has been set for him to return from his suspension.

No word yet on whether he will return to Blessed Mother Church.

On Thursday we told you that Father Meredith would not be facing criminal charges after allegations of inappropriate conduct with a minor.

Owensboro police tell us the minor, now an adult, declined to be interviewed and they determined the alleged conduct was not criminal.

Since the inquiry was unfounded, police closed their investigation.
