And now, parties on both sides are talking about the case publically for the first time.
The victim, now 64, declined to come to court for the sentencing of the man who broke into her apartment and attacked her.
The judge has imposed a gag order, so the attorneys, defendant Father Andrew McCormick, the alleged victim, and all other witnesses in the case are prohibited from commenting.
Father Andrew McCormick took the witness stand to say he never sexually molested a former altar boy who is now 26 years old. A prosecutor recounted reprimands the priest had received over improper conduct.
