OSHKOSH, Wis. -- A former Catholic priest convicted of sexually assaulting boys in Winnebago County has been committed as a sexual predator.

Prosecutors announced a plea deal Tuesday that commits Norbert Maday as a sexually violent person and sends him to a secure treatment facility for at least nine months.

The former priest was convicted in 1994 of sexually assaulting two boys during a visit to Oshkosh. Maday completed his criminal sentence, but remained in custody because the state wanted him committed as a sexual predator.

WLUK-TV reports special prosecutor Kevin Greene says Maday needs more treatment because he won't fully admit he did anything wrong. Maday will be re-evaluated in nine months. If he is not released, he will be re-evaluated every 12 months.
