Michael Fugee was arrested Monday on charges of contempt of a judicial order. He is to appear in court Tuesday.

Fugee was convicted of aggravated criminal assault in 2003 after police say he confessed to grabbing a boy’s crotch.  The conviction was thrown out and Fugee reached a deal with prosecutors that allowed him to return to the ministry if his job didn’t involve parishioners under 18.

Authorities say Fugee recently has gone on youth retreats and heard confessions from young people at a Colts Neck parish. Fugee resigned from the Archdiocese of Newark on May 2.
