(WJZ) TOWSON, Md. A former Catholic priest pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexually abusing a Baltimore County high school student in 1987.

Jerome Toohey Junior faces up to 15 years in prison for abusing Thomas Roberts, who is now a prominent CNN anchor, when Toohey was a priest and chaplain at Calvert Hall College High School in Towson.

Roberts tells Eyewitness News' Dennis Edwards "I think it will be a real injustice, a further injustice, to allow what he did to me to continue to take stuff away."
