Catholic Diocese of Lansing removes priest over sexual misconduct allegation

The Catholic Diocese of Lansing has removed another priest over an allegation of sexual misconduct.

The diocese says Father Joseph Aubin has been removed from public ministry because of a credible allegation dating back to the 1960's. The alleged abuse involved a minor.

Aubin is the 5th priest in the Lansing Diocese to be removed or resign this year due to accusations of sexual misconduct or harassment.
