(KMOV) -- A St. Louis priest accused of sexually abusing a grade school student is out of jail after a supporter posted bond.

The Reverend Xiu Hui “Joseph” Jiang is charged with two counts of first degree statutory sodomy involving a boy younger than 14 at the St. Louis Cathedral School.

The Archdiocese of St. Louis suspended Jiang from duties pending the case.

Jiang previously had been accused in Lincoln County of contact with a teenage girl, but the case was dismissed.

Jiang denies the latest allegations.
