In The Region:
A well-known Roman Catholic priest who founded the Interval Brotherhood Home in Summit County is accused of secretly depositing more than a million dollars in area banks and not paying taxes on hundreds of thousands of dollars in income.

The federal charges of filing a false tax return and evading federal financial reporting requirements were filed today (Tuesday) against the Reverend Samuel Ciccolini.

The 66-year-old priest founded the Brotherhood Home in 1970 to help treat people with addiction problems. In 2000, he celebrated mass with Pope John Paul the second in the pope's private chapel.

The federal charges say he deposited more than a million dollars over three months in 2003 by making nearly 140 separate cash deposits. The charges also say he claimed his income for that year was just over 100 thousand dollars, when it really was more than 400 thousand.

He's been charged under a law designed to catch money laundering.

A person who answered the telephone at Interval Brotherhood Home decline comment and said no one else at the home was available to take a call. There has been no response thus far to requests for information on the case from the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.
