ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) _ A Roman Catholic priest has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for exposing himself in a gas station near Rockford and in a car in the store’s parking lot.

The Rev. Aaron Brodeski was arrested last spring in the March 27 incident.

He was pastor of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Batavia at the time, and was placed on leave while the diocese investigated.

Brodeski was sentenced Friday to two years of court supervision, a $500 fine and 30 hours of community service.

A statement issued by the Diocese of Rockford says Brodeski is not assigned to any duties as priest, and “will work with diocesan officials to determine the next course for him.”

The diocese says Brodeski was ordained in 1998.
