"A Catholic priest in the Bronx is being accused in a new lawsuit of stealing over a million dollars from two different churches over a number of years and using the money to pay for a male prostitute.
According to News 12, Reverend Peter Miqueli stole donations from both St. Frances de Chantal’s Church in Throgs Neck and St. Frances Cabrini Church on Roosevelt Island, and used the money not just for the prostitute, but for renovations on his home.
The suit, filed by some of his parishoners, says that Miqueli paid the prostitute $1000 a session to act out his sexual fantasies, and apparently part of that involved BDSM slave/slave-master role-playing. He also allegedly paid tens of thousands for illegal drugs, bought an apartment for the prostitute (identified as Keith Crist), and took trips to Florida and Italy all with the money he stole.”*
