From the New Jersey Star-Ledger:
A public school teacher in Newark has agreed to the revocation of his teaching certificates over allegations that he repeatedly groped teenage boys in the 1970s and 1980s, when he was engaged in active ministry as a Roman Catholic priest.
The Rev. John Capparelli reached a settlement with the State Board of Examiners, the body that regulates teachers, ahead of a scheduled hearing before an administrative law judge earlier this month. The revocation takes effect today.

The guy should have stayed a priest. In public schools, they hang you out to dry if there is even a rumor that you are abusing kids.
In the catholic church, they make you a bishop…
