Judge: ex-priest interview can be used at trial

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - State District Judge David Ritchie says prosecutors can use the recorded interview of authorities' initial questioning of former priest Mark Broussard. 

Broussard is accused of molesting young male parishioners in the late 1980s and early '90s. 

His attorney, Tom Lorenzi, asked the court to throw out the interview because he said Broussard told detectives he needed a lawyer 10 minutes and 30 seconds into the recorded portion of the interview. 

Broussard was originally charged with 224 counts of child molestation, but the prosecution is taking him to trial on five counts.

The American Press reports Broussard's trial is set for Sept. 16.
