MIAMI (AP) - The Archdiocese of Miami says a priest who
allegedly appeared in compromising beach photos with a woman has
stepped down from as head of the diocese's radio network.
A spokeswoman for the Archdiocese said Tuesday Father Alberto Cutie has also stepped down from his position as head of St.
Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Miami Beach.
Spokeswoman Mary Ross Agosta called Cutie a wonderful priest. She said he is on a prayerful journey.
Cutie headed the archdiocese' Radio Paz and Radio Peace broadcasts. The Cuban-American priest was born in Puerto Rico and previously hosted shows on Telemundo. He also writes syndicated Spanish-language newspaper columns.
The photos allegedly show Cutie and the woman embracing on the beach and at a bar.
