COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) A former Colorado Springs priest has been sentenced to four years' probation after a July conviction on of two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The Gazette reports that former Catholic priest Charles Robert "Bob" Manning was sentenced Thursday.

Manning was acquitted of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old altar boy. The 78-year-old former pastor at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church in Colorado Springs also was acquitted of child pornography counts.
