New Allegations Against Monsignor Reported

CORPUS CHRISTI- Another alleged victim has come forward, accusing Monsignor Michael Heras of inappropriate behavior.

6 News has learned this latest person walked into the Gregory Police Department last night, to file a criminal complaint against the Monsignor.

Gregory Police Chief Robert Meager couldn't provide any details, but did say the allegations will be turned over to the San Patricio county district attorney's office.

The first person who made accusations against the Monsignor, says it happened nearly 30 years ago when Heras was a pastor at Immaculate Conception church in Gregory.

The diocese is now investigating that claim.
The diocese turned over that information to District Attorney Mark Skura, who says he's turned the case over to the Police Department.
Monsignor Heras was placed on leave went the first claim surfaced.

He has since resigned as pastor of the Saint Peter, Prince of the Apostle's parish.
