Father Aaron Nowicki – Clergy Sexual Abuse Lawyers
In January 2019, Father Aaron Nowicki, a Priest of the Diocese of Marquette resigned after serious allegations involving sexual misconduct with a vulnerable adult were made. That same year while the investigation was underway, Father Nowicki was arrested at a motel by the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office and Sault St. Marie Police, as part of a sting operation, where he intended to meet a 15 year-old boy he had been chatting with online. Father Nowicki was charged with a sex offense involving a minor, Computer/Internet Use for Harassment/Threats and Aggravated Distributing or promoting Sexual Abuse Activity with a Child. The matter was referred to the Michigan Attorney General. The case is scheduled for trial in January 2023.
Following his ordination as a priest in June 2016 Fr Nowicki served as an Associate Pastor of St. Peter Cathedral in Marquette and at St. Mary Mission in Big Bay until his resignation in 2019.
