Priest Criminal Sex Sentencing 01 Apr 14

A former Catholic Priest who served in Blue Earth and Winnebago has been sentenced to 25 years of supervised probation after pleading guilty to 2nd-degree Criminal Sexual Conduct. 47-year-old Leo Koppala was sentenced for the crime Monday after being accused of inappropriately touching an 11-year-old girl in her home last June. Koppala was also ordered to serve 31 days in jail, but had already served 45 days since his arrest. He will also be required to register as a predatory offender, may have no contact with persons under the age of 18, and will likely be deported back to his native India.
