The school president of Bishop Foley High School will not face any criminal charges after an investigation by Madison Heights police.  

Father Gerry LeBouef was removed from his office in April following a student complaint.

LeBouef also serves as pastor of Guardian Angels Catholic Church in Clawson. 

At the time, police said there was an alleged incident with the student and LeBouef that was described as inappropriate behavior.

LeBouef was placed on administrative leave and was restricted from public ministry until the matter is resolved. 

Now, officials with the Archdiocese say that while he has been cleared by the police investigation, LeBouef is unable to return to his ministerial responsibilities.

However, they stress the reason for this is of a personal nature that predates the police investigation and has nothing to do with the complaint that sparked the investigation.

Monsignor Timothy Hogan was appointed temporary administrator of Guardian Angels Parish. Kevin Kijewski is serving as interim president of Bishop Foley. 

LeBoeuf was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Detroit in 1993. He became the pastor of Guardian Angels and President of Bishop Foley in 2005.
