The fate of a former Colorado Springs priest is in the hands of a jury.

Charles Manning is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Manning was put on leave from St. Gabriel's Catholic Church back in January of last year when the allegations first emerged. Manning pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexual assault. He's also accused of giving the boy alcohol and marijuana.

The jury is currently deliberating. We will let you know what the verdict is as soon as it is announced.
