SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- A priest who once served in Snyder County is facing child sex charges.
Father John Allen served at St. Pius X Church in Selinsgrove in the early and mid-1980s.
Allen is facing charges after allegedly molesting two altar boys over a five year period beginning in the late 1990s while serving in the Harrisburg area.
According to a criminal complaint, the victims were 10 and 12 years old when the alleged abuse began.
Allen was among the more than 300 priests named in a grand jury report on child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
