Former diocesan child protection officer accused
Catholic News Service

A priest of the Arlington, Virginia, Diocese who is former head of the diocese's Office of Child Protection and Safety has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation of an allegation of sexual misconduct involving a male minor in the late 1990s.

Father Terry Specht has denied the allegation, and the diocese said it has received no other allegations of misconduct against the priest. Like all priests, diocesan employees and volunteers who work with children, he underwent a background check early in his tenure.
