PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — In what is seen as an unprecedented move, Pope Francis stripped retired Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s title.
McCarrick, once a high-ranking church official, was removed from public ministry because of decades-old allegations of sexual abuse.
He was accused three times of sexual misconduct with adults over the years.
He has also been accused of abusing a minor. That case is awaiting a church trial.
McCarrick led the Archdiocese of Washington years ago.
