A priest in Texas has been accused of groping a woman as she was receiving her last rites in October 2018.

Gerold Langsch, 75, went to the victim's home to deliver the sacrament while the victim was in hospice care, according to reports.

Langsch is then said to have used a bottle of lotion to rub on the woman's chest before massaging her breasts.

Langsch's religious order is based in Waukesha County. He was part of the Schoenstatt Fathers movement there for over 43 years.

He is faced with a misdemeanor assault charge as well as a $15,000 bond.
