Rev. Michael Yakaitis resigned from his post as the Roman Catholic chaplain of the University of Chicago's Calvert House today after admitting that he was sexually involved with an 18 year old seminary student 15 years ago. Rev. Yakaitis had been living at the U of C's Catholic center for three years. The former seminary student who came forward with the allegations of sex abuse also revealed that the diocese knew about Yakaitis's history and placed him in a college ministry anyway.
