MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee priest has pleaded guilty to reduced charges that he touched a girl while at a Catholic school in Wauwatosa.

Seventy-six-year-old Robert Marsicek was charged in February with felony first-degree sexual assault of a child. But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports as a result of negotiations with prosecutors, Marsicek pleaded guilty to fourth-degree sexual assault, a misdemeanor. Sentencing is set for Dec. 15.

According to the original complaint, Marsicek touched the girl while at Pius X Parish and school in Wauwatosa between 2007 and 2011. Marsicek told detectives the girl liked to sit on his lap, and that he told her it was unacceptable.

Marsicek was removed from ministry in 2013. He remains free on bond and is to have no contact with the victim or anyone under 18.
