HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – A priest in Huber Heights has been placed on leave, according to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

The diocese posted a statement on its Facebook page late Wednesday.

Fr. Cutcher will remain on leave of absence pending the outcome of the investigation. While on leave of absence Fr. Cutcher is not residing in the rectory, is not present in the parish office and will not be on the school campus.

The diocese said Fr. John Tonkin, Dean of the Dayton North Deanery, is named Parochial Administrator of Pastoral Region XII, which includes St. Peter, Our Lady of the Rosary, Holy Cross and St. Adalbert parishes.

The Archdiocese said in a press release that the allegation against Cutcher was that he “was texting a minor in a manner that was inconsistent with the requirements of the Decree of Child Protection.”
