(Hastings, MN) -- Former Reverend Francis Hoefgen is accused of sexual conduct with an altar boy in Hastings. Hoefgen served at St. Boniface Church in 1985 when the boy was a student at the school. Hoefgen admitted the abuse, but was never prosecuted. Instead of jail, he was sent to a Catholic treatment center. Hoefgen was charged yesterday with two counts of sexual abuse.
