Former NH diocese official, treatment center head to plead guilty to theft

The former leader of one of the nation's top clergy treatment centers plans to plead guilty to stealing money from the Roman Catholic Bishop in New Hampshire, where he previously worked.

Msgr. Edward Arsenault (AHR'-suh-noh) held several senior positions in New Hampshire from 1999 to 2009 before becoming president and CEO of Saint Luke Institute in Maryland. He resigned from that job in May when New Hampshire authorities said they were investigating allegations involving an inappropriate adult relationship and misuse of church funds.

The attorney general's office said Monday that Arsenault had waived indictment and will plead guilty to theft from the bishop, the estate of a priest and a hospital where he had done consulting work. Each theft exceeded $1,500.

Arsenault's lawyer, Cathy Green, declined to comment.
