By Tony Hanson PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Philadelphia Archdiocesan priest now faces a preliminary hearing in August after being charged with the sexual assault of a 10 year old altar boy in Philadelphia in 1997. […]
A Philadelphia jury today convicted Msgr. William Lynn on one count of child endangerment. No verdicts were returned regarding a co-defendant in the case, Father James Brennan.
A Philadelphia jury is set to return for an 11th day of deliberations Tuesday in the groundbreaking clergy-abuse trial of two Roman Catholic priests.
The CBS3 I-Team has learned that a Catholic priest who was removed from the ministry over sex abuse allegations now holds a sensitive security post at Philadelphia International Airport.
Monsignor James Beisel has testified he helped defendant Monsignor William Lynn compile the now infamous list of admitted and alleged predator priests which was later allegedly destroyed by others.
Twelve jurors have now been selected to hear an historic case, allegations of child abuse by priests and a cover-up by a church official, Monsignor William Lynn.
A municipal judge has rejected a defense motion to dismiss the child endangerment case against Philadelphia priest Msgr. William Lynn because of newly discovered evidence in the clergy abuse case.
Jury selection has been delayed at least a day in the landmark priest sex-abuse trial of a longtime Roman Catholic church official in Philadelphia.
Jury selection begins today in the alleged clergy abuse trial of Monsignor William Lynn, Father James Brennan and former priest Edward Avery, who was defrocked.
A Philadelphia judge today rejected a defense motion that she remove herself from the pending clergy child sex abuse case because of bias.
There is now a gag order imposed on all parties in the case, so neither the prosecution nor defense can make statements in reaction to Bevilacqua’s death.
The prosecution alleges these “prior bad acts” show a pattern of conduct by the church that contributed to the criminal conduct of defendant Msgr. William Lynn.
The prosecution has cited countless instances in which Archdiocesan officials were aware of alleged abuse by dozens of priests over decades, even cases in which priests admitted abuse, but allegedly the Archdiocese failed to act, often until the threat of a leak or legal action.
Much of the case against five men in the priest sex abuse is private, because of a gag order, but today KYW Newsradio got a remarkable look inside. The judge is considering whether to allow certain evidence that the prosecution wants to admit to present at trial.
