Priest accused of having sex in truck stop
ST. ROSE, La. - A 57-year-old priest has been arrested and booked with crime against nature after being accused of having sex with another man in the bathroom stall of a Saint Rose truck stop.
The Reverend Dean Robins of Kenner, who has served as pastor of the Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church, was booked along with 35-year-old Marbin Tursios of Saint Rose.
A sheriff's deputy from Saint Charles Parish noticed two men in one stall Sunday.
Rev. William Maestri, spokesman for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans, says Robins has been placed on administrative leave.
Robins was released after posting a five-thousand dollar bond. Tursios remains in jail.
Robins could not be located for comment.
