New Sex Abuse Claims Against Former Montgomery Priest

Aug 11, 2003 |

New allegations have surfaced against a Catholic priest who once served in Mobile and Montgomery. The Mobile Register is reporting that a second woman has accused the Reverend Patrick L. Nicholson of sexual misconduct.

Nicholson was discharged from his position as Air Force chaplain in 2000 after being accused of luring a former Air Force Academy cadet into a sexual relationship. Now, a 41-year old woman says he molested her in Prattville when she was 15 years old.

Nicholson is on leave from the church and not allowed to function as a priest. The woman says a Mobile lawyer and Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson Junior told her that civil or criminal judgments are unlikely because the statute of limitations has passed.

Nicholson's lawyer told the Register his client remembered one incident of physical contact with the girl, but said he never intended anything inappropriate.
