The Toldeo Blade posted a story on Saturday evening stating that the Diocese of Toledo had announced that it had placed the Rev. Nelson Beaver on administrative leave after an allegation was made that he sexually abused a minor more than two decades ago. During the leave, the Blade stated, Nelson would not be able to engage in pastoral duties for Resurrection Parish in Lexington and St. Mary’s in Mansfield.

Additional information and statements are available in the Blade story, including from the Bishop of Toledo and Rev. Nelson, and which can be accessed here.
