Church Pews

PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The conviction and sentence for retired priest Hugh Lang have been overturned.

Father Lang was accused of sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy in Munhall in 2001.

In February, Lang was found guilty on multiple charges but Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Anthony Mariani ruled Monday morning Lang should get a new trial because of improperly admitted evidence.
