Report: Chicago priest to take plea deal

June 30, 2007 at 4:31 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, June 30 (UPI) -- A Catholic priest reportedly is set to plead guilty to molestation charges that rocked the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Sources told WBBM-TV in Chicago Saturday the Rev. Daniel McCormack has agreed to plead guilty to five counts of criminal sexual abuse and serve five years in prison.

McCormack was charged last year with molesting students in 2005 and 2006 at a Catholic school where he taught and coached basketball.

The allegations stirred up criticism of Cardinal Francis George for supposedly not taking immediate action against McCormack.

WBBM said with good behavior, McCormack could be out in less than three years.
