Merrillville Priest Made Up August Attack; Now Being Investigated For Child Sex Abuse
CHICAGO (CBS) — A Merrillville priest has been placed on administrative leave, after police confirmed he lied about being beaten at his church in August. The priest also faces a “credible accusation of sexual misconduct with a minor.” Fr. Basil Hutsko, 64, said he was attacked at St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church in Merrillville, Indiana, while praying at the altar on Aug. 20, and claimed his attacker mentioned the clergy sex abuse scandal. On Tuesday, the Ruthenian Eparchy of Parma, Ohio, which oversees Hutsko’s church, said it verified with Hutsko’s family that the attack “did not occur.” Merrillville police also confirmed Hutsko made up the attack. Police had been investigating a possible hate crime, but now are questioning Hutsko. Source
