A Harlem priest charged with sexually abusing high school students he taught in the 1980s has resigned.

Monsignor Wallace Harris, 63, was the pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Church from 1989 until his suspension two years ago.

Because of a statute of limitations, no criminal charges or civil lawsuits have been filed.
