    A recently ordained Roman Catholic priest accused of groping a 13-year-old girl under her skirt last summer has been indicted on criminal sexual contact and child endangerment charges.

    Morris County prosecutors say the Rev. Marcin Nurek touched the girl's buttocks over her underwear and told her she was "sexy." The indictment was recently handed up by a county grand jury.

    The 37-year-old priest was put on administrative leave by the Diocese of Paterson following his Aug. 3 arrest. He is an emigrant from Poland and was ordained into the priesthood in July.

    Nurek's lawyer, William Ware, declined comment on the indictment on Monday.
