A Council Bluffs priest was suspended Tuesday after an allegation of unwelcome advances, the diocese said.
Father Carlos Gomez Pineda was suspended after Bishop Richard Pates heard about the allegation early Tuesday morning, the Diocese of Des Moines said in a statement. Pineda was accused of making "a serious violation of boundary issues related to unwelcome advances toward an adult," the diocese said.
Pates has notified authorities about the allegation against Pineda, who serves as parochial vicar of Corpus Christi Parish in Council Bluffs.
