JEFFERSON, Wis. (AP) A man has testified he was sexually assaulted dozens of times by a Fort Atkinson priest when he was a young boy.

That priest, William Nolan, is on trial in Jefferson County for six counts on child sexual assault in a trial that began this week. His accuser, now 26, testified Tuesday that he knew as early as sixth grade that he was gay and said he was drawn to the good-looking, energetic priest.

The man, who was an altar boy at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, says he met weekly with Nolan for sexual encounters.

WKOW-TV reports the accuser testified he decided to contact police years later after watching the film Spotlight about Boston's priest sex abuse scandal. He testified he was concerned Nolan could have had contact with other children.
