WARREN, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan prosecutor says a 66-year-old
priest won't face charges following a complaint that he'd engaged
in sexual misconduct with a minor.

Oakland County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Paul Walton tells The
Oakland Press of Pontiac and The Detroit News the complaint dates
back to 1991, beyond the state's statute of limitations in such a case.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit announced Sunday that
the Rev. Gary Schulte went on administrative leave Friday from St.
Sylvester Parish in Warren. The archdiocese said it found "sufficient substance" behind a complaint received in September that he engaged in sexual misconduct.

Schulte was ordained in 1972 and worked at several parishes in suburban Detroit.
